Systima Technologies, Inc. of Kirkland, Wash. provided flight critical pyrovalves for the United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas V rocket that successfully launched a NROL-52 mission from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida on Sunday October 15th.  Systima’s pyrotechnic valves are part of the Centaur Upper Stage Reaction Control System (RCS).
