Lockheed's Atlas IIIA is an American Orbital Launch Vehicle and the first member of the Atlas family since the Atlas A. The Atlas IIIA was a development of the Atlas using Russian engines in place of the Rocket Dyne MA-5 booster/sustainer that was used on all previous models. The Atlas IIIA featured a more practical staging method compared to previous Atlas family members.
Lockheed Martin turned to Martinez & Turek, Inc. for their expertise in developing road transportation and erection trailer systems. The Atlas IIIA Transportation/Erection Trailer was designed to accommodate the Atlas IIAS & IIIA vehicles. M&T designed, engineered, and manufactured a dynamic transportation and erection trailer that ensured a light weight system capable of meeting a variety of functional and operational requirements.
