LV is installed on a pre-launch integration adapter (YA) serving to mate mechanical, pneudraulic, and electric connections between LV and the launch pad and the ground support equipment for pre-launch processing. The pre-launch integration adapter serves in the capacity of a support structure element during transportation and assembling. After a launch, the pre-launch integration adapter remains on the launch pad and can be re-used.
