Atlantic Hydraulic Systems recently named Christina Chapman as project manager for a critical system it is developing for NASA’s Artemis program, which aims to land the first woman and first person of color on the moon.
Chapman will manage the NASA Mobile Launcher 2 (ML2) hydraulics systems project, which is used for NASA’s new SLS rocket program. Chapman’s work “will supply the launch actuators with high-pressure hydraulic fluid during the liftoff sequence,” according to a company press release.
Chapman started at Atlantic in January 2022. She worked for nine years at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard as a mechanical engineer in the nuclear engineering department specializing in reactor plant cleanliness and reactor plant system valves. Now she finds herself as a key member of the Atlantic team to aid NASA’s ambitious goals.
