The Space Station Processing Facility (SSPF) is a three-story, 42,500 m2 (457,000 square foot) building located in the Kennedy Space Center industrial area, just east of the Operations and Checkout Building.[1] It was built for the processing of International Space Station flight hardware. The SSPF includes two processing bays, an airlock, operational control rooms, laboratories, logistics areas, office space, and a cafeteria. The processing areas, airlock, and laboratories were designed to support non-hazardous Station and Space Shuttle payloads in 100,000 class clean work areas.
