Avionics System for SLS Boosters Gets 'Boost' of Its Own on Path to Space

The avionics that will guide NASA's Space Launch System (SLS) boosters on the rocket's trip to deep space missions will get a big "boost" toward being ready for flight through an extensive test series now being conducted at ATK’s Avionics Lab in Clearfield, Utah.

The avionics system is responsible for igniting, steering and jettison of the two, five-segment solid rocket boosters for the SLS. The boosters used during the first two launches of SLS will be the world's largest at 154 feet long and 12 feet in diameter.
