Caroline Bennitt Atec in Space

October 2, Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, FL — Today’s successful Morelos-3 Satellite mission launch marks the 113th launch with Atec manufactured and tested valves for Rocketdyne’s RL10 engine. This morning an Atlas V launched from complex 41 carrying Mexico’s next-generation communications satellite into orbit. The satellite for Mexico’s Ministry of defense will help the country’s telecommunication efforts.

Congratulations to all that worked on making today’s launch a success. Atec looks forward to supporting future launches and in-space missions.

Since 1997, Atec has been proud to manufacture and test liquid fuel engine components crucial to successful Atlas and Delta Rocket launches.
