Master Launch Processing System (LPS) Console
Personnel staffing the Master LPS Console are responsible for controlling the configuration of all the consoles in the primary firing room, 30 other processors and many more peripheral devices that make up a "firing room." Prior to the start of testing, this console loads the correct software into each of the remaining computers, connects the proper data paths to and from the Shuttle and all ground support equipment, and initializes the entire firing room system to begin processing.
During routine Shuttle testing, the Master Console performs integrity or health monitoring of all firing room assemblies, including the other consoles. Should a unit fail, the Master Console provides malfunction recovery and performs the necesary reconfiguration to allow the failed unit or spare unit to be brought back into service.
After testing is complete, the Master Console controls problem resolution of failed components and prepares the firing room for the next test.
The LPS Test Conductors (LPS) are responsible for monitoring and verifying the integrity of the LPS.
