"At the U.S. Army's White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico, a portion of Orion's Pad Abort-1 (PA-1) test vehicle is shown from above in the Final Integration and Test Facility during preparations for the flight test.

From left to right are the abort motor, the jettison motor and the interstage section not yet attached. In addition to the attitude control motor (not pictured), these motors will be used for the first Orion test of the launch abort system, PA-1."
