Best acronym ever


At NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, new towers are being constructed for the Antenna Test Bed Array for the Ka-Band Objects Observation and Monitoring, or Ka-BOOM system. Workers soon will begin construction on the 40-foot-diameter dish antenna arrays and their associated utilities, and prepare the site for the operations command center facility. The Ka-BOOM project is one of the final steps in developing the techniques to build a high power, high resolution radar system capable of becoming a Near Earth Object Early Warning System.

I’ve worked on some programs with lousy acronyms, funny acronyms, acronyms within acronyms, but someone gets an attaboy for Ka-BOOM.
