Pacific Spaceport Complex – Alaska


Kodiak, Alaska (AK), US
Launch Pad 1, suitable for launching orbital missions, is serviced by an enclosed and movable gantry called the Launch Service Structure (LSS). Launch Pad 2, suitable for sub-orbital launches, is enclosed and serviced by the Spacecraft and Assemblies Transfer (SCAT) facility.

Other facilities include the Launch Control Center (LCC), a Payload Processing Facility (PPF), and an Integration Processing Facility (IPF). The SCAT, a movable structure roller mounted on rails, also provides all-weather indoor transfer of processed motors into the LSS.

They haven't had a launch at the KLC in over ten months (as of Oct 6, 2009)- it just sits there rusting away. Here in Kodiak, we call it "Space Pork Kodiak".
Google the name for more information.
