USS San Diego Gives NASA a Lift

USS San Diego (LPD 22) departed Naval Base San Diego this week for an Underway Recovery Test (URT), a multi-agency mission in support of NASA’s Orion program. The URT is the second of two tests the Navy and NASA will conduct prior to the Exploration Flight Test later this year.

This marks the first at-sea recovery of the crew module. During the URT, a test model of the crew module, its forward bay cover, and associated parachutes will be deployed from USS San Diego and recovered to finalize techniques and procedures.
