SPARKS, Nev., April 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) welcomes the United Launch Alliance's (ULA) new Human Launch Services organization, which will support the company's efforts to human rate the Atlas V launch vehicle. This office will now serve as an interface between SNC's Dream Chaser® orbital crew vehicle team and ULA's Atlas V launch vehicle team.
"The SNC team is looking forward to working with ULA's Human Launch Services organization and continuing to build upon the success of our seven year partnership," said Mark Sirangelo, Corporate Vice President of Sierra Nevada Corporation's (SNC) Space Systems.
