Delta NRO Program
United Launch Alliance Delta Heavy rocket sending NRO satellite #71 to space. ULA functions as a primary vendor for the US government’s earth and intrasolar reconnaissance activities. Digitrace is a machining supplier for weight reduction in the body of the rocket allowing for greater payloads of delivery to space.
As a key supplier to United Launch Alliance, Digitrace supplies machining services for the next generation Vulcan Centaur V. Fuel tank panels are precision machined for weight reduction and form fit for laser welding. Developed in conjunction with ULA, this machining process has replaced a toxic and unpredictable chemical material removal technique.
