LUNAR launches are coordinated by nine people designated as the Range Safety Officer (RSO), Launch Control Officer (LCO), Low-power Safety Check Officer (LP-SCO)and High-power Safety Check Officer (HP-SCO), Pad Assignment Director (PAD), two Launch Pad Supervisors (LPS), Registration Manager (RM) and a Forward Officer on the Hill (FOTH). You can tell these people by the cool colored vests they wear. We all take turns manning these positions during a launch to spread the burden of making the launches run smoothly. As compensation for spending time as one of these officers, you get to wear a fancy colored vest with the LUNAR logo on it and your officer title (no, you don't get to take them home with you).
