During a commissioning ceremony for the new Convoy Command Vehicle (background), Tony Shibly, project manager, United Space Alliance, offers a few remarks to guests. At left are USA Chief Operating Officer Mike McCulley and Center Director Roy Bridges Jr. The new 40-foot vehicle is replacing a 15-year old model, and will be used following Shuttle landings as the prime vehicle to control critical communications between the orbiter, the crew and the Launch Control Center, to monitor the health of the Shuttle Orbiter systems and to direct convoy operations at the Shuttle Landing Facility. Upgrades and high-tech features incorporated into the design and development of this vehicle make it more reliable and efficient for the convoy crew. Seating capacity was increased from 4 to 12, and video recorders and television monitors were added to provide the convoy team with the maximum amount of visual information
