Expendable Launch Vehicle, known as EELV, is designed to improve our nation¡¦s access to space by making space launch vehicles more affordable and reliable. The program is replacing the existing fleet of launch systems with two families of launch vehicles, each using common components and common infrastructure. The vehicles are the Boeing Delta IV and Lockheed Martin Atlas V. EELV¡¦s operability improvements over current systems include a standard payload interface, standardized launch pads and increased off-pad processing.
