The latest updates on the Artemis-1 include a nice mention of Valcor and our Tank Pressurization Assemblies: “The pressurization / repressurization system within the Core Stage MPS is based on the same concepts as the Space Shuttle MPS that the RS-25 engines flew with Shuttle, but the implementation is significantly different from Shuttle. ‘We redesigned that whole system, so it’s not very orbiter-like,’ John Shannon, Boeing’s Vice President and Program Manager for SLS, noted in a recent interview. ‘We had those little pop-up valves before (Shuttle), now we have these tank pressurization assemblies that Valcor (Valcor Engineering Corporation) makes for us, much more robust.’”
