Orion Ascent Abort 2 (AA-2) Mission
An overview of Orion's Ascent Abort-2 (AA-2) flight test will be presented by NASA AA-2 Crew Module and Separation (CSR) project manager, Jenny Devolites. The early delivery of the AA-2 CSR hardware and software to Kennedy Space Center (KSC) for the upcoming summer launch is due, in large part, to the project's use of lean-development practices for systems engineering and integration (SE&I). Prior to becoming the AA-2 CSR project manager, Jenny was the SE&I lead on this and other NASA JSC projects. She will share an overview of AA-2 and include lessons on the application of lean development to SE&I principles.
