AFT Software Makes a Splash on Lunar Rocket ARTEMIS I

The last time humankind sent people to the moon was in 1972. I was still in grade school and remember well those missions to space! Now, 50 years later, there are new efforts to return to the moon. One of those efforts is the ARTEMIS rocket. ARTEMIS 1 launched on November 16, 2022. The unmanned Orion crew module splashed down this past Sunday on December 11 off the coast of Baja California.

We are excited that AFT software was used on several parts of this lunar mission!

One part of the mission we can discuss publicly is the launch pad deluge system for sound suppression. AFT software regularly gets used on such applications – see Shhhh! Suppressing Sound Waves From Rocket and Space Shuttle Engines. Hopefully in the future we will be able to talk publicly about other parts of ARTEMIS on which AFT software was used.
