With the launch of the first prototypes of the Satellite Launch Vehicle VLS-1, different failures prevented accomplishing the mission. Then, in 2005, it was decided to carry out test flights with the purpose of testing all the systems in the vehicle. The proposal of the work is to assess the decision of conducting the second test flight XVT02 for the continuity and success of project VLS-1 based on a decision support multicriteria method. A group decision process was applied, with specialists from different areas of the project. The aggregating judgments approach led to integrate the group decision and the ensuing findings confirmed the decision taken previously, of carrying out the tests flight.
