Logistics Update

February 18,20 1 1

The Mission Center Complex upgrade is continuing on schedule. Habitat I area is 80% complete and the Habitat II area is about 60% complete. Both of these will be operational for the summer Space Camp experience for our trainees. We are anticipating the delivery of the Lunar Lander and capsule from Wonder Works on or about March io", which will be the anchor elements for this new interactive area. Thanks to the Building Maintenance and Exhibit Construction staff, this project is being com p leted in-house and is on schedule .

The Support Team has refurbished many of the common areas throughout the Center in preparation for our upcoming season. This includes painting of stairwells , refurbishment of outside exhibits and the movement of several exhibits in the museum that improve the thru put and flow for customers and trainees alike.

The Bus Maintenance personnel have prepared 5 busses to be placed on Gov Deals auction site mid March . This will reduce our overall bus fleet to 5 .

Skylab exhibit in Rocket Park is receiving a complete face lift. The Custodial Department pressure washed the exterior in preparation of the Building Maintenance personnel painting while the bus Maintenance personnel have redone the railing and sign board stands .

Moonbuggy races will be held 1 & 2 April 2011 and the initial meeting b etween MSFC and USSRC has begun .

Redstone Garrison has requested that we consolidate our 3 warehouse into 2. We have conducted a survey of the equipmen t that is presently stored there and we can support this request . Wi t h the BRAC units moving onto Redstone Arsenal, warehouse space has become

critical . We have requested that the area adjacent to the 2 remaining warehouse be approved for open store of several of our items (Saturn V Carrier Wheels and support structures and several

f iberglass helicopter cockpit shells, etc.). We are awaiting approval of the outside storage to commence the relocation operations .
