May 22, 2015 – This week, the United States Air Force successfully launched its X-37B unmanned reusable space plane, also known as the Orbital Test Vehicle (OTV) from the Space Launch Complex at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. The space plane was packed upright inside the payload of an Orbital Atlas V Rocket. The X-37B is a robotic spacecraft built for long-duration missions in orbit and carries a solar array to generate power. Both the Atlas V Rocket and the X-37B utilize VPT’s high-reliability DC-DC converters and EMI filters, and we are proud to be a part of this successful mission. More information on the X-37B robotic space plane’s recent launch can be found on the United Launch Alliance website.
