Recently, Bastion personnel were an instrumental part of the NBL team in the test operations in preparation for the Artemis II mission. This series of diving/swimming operations is a subset of Exploration Ground Support (EGS’s) Verification and Validation (V&V) campaign designed to gain approval for Open-Ocean Crew Module Test Article (CMTA) Operations. These operations have been identified as necessary to allow EGS’s Open Water Lead to evaluate the CMTA in a semi-controlled open-water environment. Specific operations scoped for this set of evaluations consist of seaworthiness, watertight integrity of both Outer Mold Line (OML) and Inner Mold Line (IML) in Stable-I, II & III orientations, stability in Stable-I & II orientations, towing stability and capabilities, Open-water Ground Support Equipment (GSE) interfacing, Docking & Side Hatch functionality, administrative rotation to/from Stable-II, and Manual Uprighting operations (MUPS).
