Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter
VIP successfully delivered the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) for NASA to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The satellite’s mission is one of the first steps in NASA’s plan to return astronauts to the moon. LRO will spend at least one year in a low polar orbit on its primary exploration mission, with the possibility of three more years to collect additional detailed scientific information about the moon and its environment.

VIP transported the 12’ wide, 15’2” high container housing the LRO on NASA’s flatbed trailer along with a team of escorts from NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

In addition to transporting the LRO, VIP had five exclusive use, climate control, team loads that transported the LRO support equipment.
