They purchased 22 Leica Viva TS15 robotic total stations to monitor critical displacements on the new Space Launch System’s RS-25 engines during a comprehensive structural test that will be performed at the Systems Integration and Test Facility at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala. The agency has also purchased two Leica Nova MS50 MultiStations to provide precise total station measurement and focused laser scanning of individual components of the SLS program.

The SLS will carry the Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle as well as important cargo, equipment and science experiments to deep-space destinations such as near-Earth asteroids, Lagrange points, the moon and ultimately Mars.
