EELV Secondary Payload Adapter

The EELV Secondary Payload Adapter—ESPA called an ESPA ring—is a payload adapter ring for launching secondary payloads on orbital launch vehicles. Developed for US launch vehicles in the 2000s to launch secondary payloads on US DoD space missions that used the Atlas V and Delta IV Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicles, the adapter design has become a de facto standard and is now used for spaceflight missions on non-governmental private spacecraft missions as well. For example, multiple ESPA rings were used on a non-DoD launch of the SpaceX Falcon 9 that carried the Orbcomm OG-2 constellation of communication satellites; the use of ESPA ring technology reduces launch costs for the primary mission and enables secondary and tertiary missions with minimal impact to the original mission. Development was funded by the Air Force Research Laboratory Space Vehicles Directorate for the United States Department of Defense Space Test Program under a Small Business Innovative Research grant in the late 1990s.

Moog CSA Engineering teamed with AFRL to design and qualify the ring in the early 2000s. Additional studies have been done on ESPA applications for lunar and science missions under an SBIR from NASA Ames Research Center As of 2010, the ring is produced by Moog CSA Engineering. A number of missions have used the ESPA ring; the ESPA ring's maiden mission was on STP-1 in 2007. As of December 2015, the ESPA ring had been used on all 3 EELV-class rockets. Multiple ESPA rings may be used on a single launch, stacked to increase the satellite carrying capacity. Two ESPA Grande rings were used on Orbcomm OG-2 flight 1 in 2014 and three stacked Grande rings for the 11-satellite Orbcomm OG-2 flight 2 deployment in 2015; the initial ESPA ring was designed to support a 15,000-pound primary payload and up to six 400-pound secondary payloads. Each secondary spacecraft is mounted radially on a 15 inches diameter port and is allocated 24 inches × 28 inches × 38 inches volume; this has led to the colloquial designation of ESPA-class payloads.

The design includes a standard electrical interface for the attached payloads. Derivatives of the ESPA ring include satellite dispensers, space tugs and satellite buses. Commercial derivatives of the ESPA Grande ring include the Spaceflight Secondary Payload System and SHERPA developed and manufactured by Andrews Space under contract to Spaceflight Services. SSPS includes five 24 inches -diameter ports, each capable of carrying payloads weighing up 300 kilograms. "The SSPS operates similar to a standalone spacecraft with a flight computer, electrical power system, orbit determination capability, payload power switching." SHERPA is a powered variant of SSPS capable of large orbit change. When NASA upgraded its Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter mission's launch vehicle to an Atlas V, it freed around 2,200 lbs. of additional mass for what would become the Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite. NASA held a competition to see how best to use the space and a number of proposals came from the Ames Research Center.

The winning proposal included Moog CSA Engineering's ESPA ring serving as the base mechanical satellite bus to launch the LCROSS spacecraft as a secondary payload under the LRO. LCROSS impacted the lunar surface and confirmed the presence of water ice; the LCROSS Lunar-impact water detection mission in 2009 took advantage of the structural capabilities of ESPA ring to attach all six of its science experiments and control systems, communications equipment, solar panels, a small monopropellant propulsion system to implement pre-impact payload separation and control. The ESPAStar is a comparable design concept by Orbital Sciences Corporation, its maiden flight was on the AFSPC-11 mission as the EAGLE secondary payload.

Alexandra Dock, Liverpool

Alexandra Dock is a dock on the River Mersey and part of the Port of Liverpool. It is situated in the northern dock system in Bootle. Alexandra Dock consists of a main basin nearest the river wall and three branch docks to the east, with the southern branch filled in; the dock was built by George Fosbery Lyster between 1874-82. During its construction, the dock was known as Atlantic Dock for about a year. Opened in 1881 and named in honour of Queen Alexandra, the dock has three branch docks and is connected to Hornby Dock to the north and Langton Dock to the south. Access was through Langton Dock and the problematic Canada Basin. Prior to the construction of Seaforth Dock, Alexandra Dock was involved in the grain trade; the grain silos had a 110,000 ton capacity, with floor space for a further 20,000 tons. The dock had refrigeration facilities, which were provided by Union Cold Storage, for imported frozen meat; when built, the cold store was the largest in Europe with a capacity of 2,668,000 cu ft.

The facility was built at the end of No. 3 Branch Dock, allowed direct transfer to ships in No. 2 Branch Dock. The dock was served by LNWR Alexandra Dock railway station and the Liverpool Overhead Railway's Alexandra Dock railway station. Latterly, its main export is recycled scrap metal. McCarron, Ken.
