New Shepard Space Vehicle Makes Fourth Flight

JASC congratulates Blue Origin on the fourth flight of its re-useable New Shepard space vehicle on Sunday, June 19.

JASC designed and manufactured the Flight Control System Actuators and the engine Thrust Vector Control Actuators used on New Shepard.  Both of these actuators are servo-hydraulic units, with the former used to steer the vehicle and provide aerodynamic stability, and the latter to vector the engine/nozzle for the same purpose.

JASC looks forward to supporting Blue Origin’s actuator needs on many future successful flights.  Located in Tempe, AZ, JASC is an engineering solutions provider for the aerospace, space and gas turbine industries.
