Courier Launch Escape Tower

Courier Launch Escape Tower

DanRev
The Courier Launch Escape Tower (LET or LES) is a system connected to the Crew Module (CM) of the Courier C/SM spacecraft and used to quickly separate the crew module from the rest of the rocket in case of emergency. It is utilized on the crewed Hermes C rockets as part of a modular rocket system. To date, all crewed Hermes C-I have a LET as a launch abort system, though IPSA plans to gradually phase the LET out for an integrated launch abort system in the Courier CM itself instead. #Launch_Escape_System
