## <a name="PSAS&#39; Current Project"></a> PSAS' Current Project

Launch Vehicle No. 2 (LV2) is our current project. The project's scope includes the complete launch system comprising the rocket, mobile ground systems support, and development systems. Its first flight (an airframe only test to 18,000ft) was [[September 20, 2002|news/2002-09-22]] in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada.

For more information on the work in progress, please see the PSAS teams' home pages.
