The ATK and NASA investigation team continues to analyze the anomaly that occurred during the countdown of the Aug. 27 Development Motor-1 (DM-1) static test. Over the weekend, the investigation team has eliminated both flight vehicle hardware and software as potential root causes, and our focus has shifted to the ground test hardware. Specific suspect circuitry and components have been identified and are being methodically investigated, utilizing a systematic, detailed fault tree approach. The team is assessing removal and replacement plans for potential suspect items.
For planning purposes, the team is working to a date of not earlier than Thursday, Sept. 10 for the DM-1 static test. Further activities this week include additional dry runs and technical readiness reviews. We will issue a media advisory when the official test date is set.
