Pads 39 A and B

Since the late 1960's, pads A and B at the Kennedy Space Center's Launch Complex 39 have serviced as backdrops for America's most significant manned space flight endeavors, - Apollo, Skylab, Apollo-Soyuz, and Space Shuttle.  

Over the multi-year history of pads A and B, Space Science Services has been involved in the original fabrication, erection, and numerous modification projects at these launch complexes.

These services were to help our customers reach their quality objectives.
