DA VINCI SPACE PROJECT SIGNS KINDERSLEY TRANSPORT, HINZ AUTOMATION AND TITAN CRANE
Toronto, Ontario: Canadian Ansari X PRIZE team "The da Vinci Space Project" has secured the participation of three key players in its bid to launch the world's first private manned flight to space. Kindersley Transport, a Diamond level sponsor, will move the rocket, "WildFire Mk VI", from Toronto to the launch site in Kindersley and back following the summer launches. Hinz Automation Inc., also a Diamond Sponsor, will design the human interface for the da Vinci Mission Control computers that direct "WildFire Mk VI" during its ascent, powered flight and return to earth. Titan Crane, a Gold Sponsor, will work alongside Kindersley Transport in the launch, providing a standing lift for "WildFire Mk VI" while the balloon is readied for release. Team da Vinci Project Team Leader and astronaut Brian Feeney noted, "It's great to see this level of participation from Saskatchewan people and businesses. It's truly a great Canadian team effort."
