SPACE SHUTTLE MAIN ENGINE OVERHAUL PROGRAM 841625

The Space Shuttle Main Engine first flight set from the Orbiter Columbia was returned to Rockwell International/Rocketdyne Division in Canoga Park, California for overhaul after five successful development flights. The three main engines have been completely disassembled and the hardware assessed for space flight effects. Schedules to overhaul subsequent flight engines have been established based on operational requirements of the Space Transportation System. To support these requirements, a dedicated Space Shuttle Main Engine Overhaul Center is being built at the Canoga Park Rocketdyne Facility incorporating the latest in manufacturing, inspection, and data processing equipment.
