Servo Kinetics Inc announced the final overhaul and upgrade of the Space Shuttle Training Simulator for United Space Alliance and NASA in Houston, Texas.
Servo Kinetics Inc CEO, George Kokalis was quoted as saying,
There are some projects that are so special there is no way to describe the pride and satisfaction that all of Servo Kinetics Inc staff experienced when selected to overhaul/upgrade the Space Shuttle Training Simulator for the United Space Agency/NASA. We performed the initial refurbishment in the early 1990’s, and were surprised to see some of the same engineering staff from the first project return to our facilities for final testing on their actuators in 2006/2007.
All testing went as planned and the actuators were crated and returned to NASA/Houston on schedule. Kokalis went on to say,
We are all sad about the end of the Shuttle program, but our pride remains undiminished.
