RRM Phase 2

New Robotic Refueling Mission Hardware Launching to Space Station


07.28.2014 - NASA's fix-it experiment on the International Space Station, the Robotic Refueling Mission, is moving one step closer to its own 2.0 update. The European Space Agency's Automated Transfer Vehicle-5, currently set to launch on July 29, 2014 at 7:47 Eastern, will deliver a new space tool and task board for RRM's second phase of operations. > Learn more about RRM-Phase 2.

SSCO Presents at ISS Research and Development Conference


06.18.2014 - Mr. Eugene Skelton is presenting SSCO's Raven demonstration at the 3rd Annual ISS Research and Development Conference on June 18, 2014. After it launches to the International Space Station in 2016, Raven will demonstrate a real-time relative navigation system that would enable future spacecraft to autonomously rendezvous with both prepared vehicles and those not designed for servicing. > Learn more about Raven

New Satellite Servicing Demonstrations on Space Station


03.06.2014 - Piece by piece, NASA is building new technologies to refuel and repair existent satellites in orbit—and they're using the International Space Station to test them. After concluding a successful ground-based test of robotic satellite refueling technology, the Satellite Servicing Capabilities Office is preparing for a new round of related demonstrations on the International Space Station. The orbital testing focuses on real-time relative navigation, spacecraft inspection and the replenishment of cryogens in satellites not originally designed for in-flight service. > Go to NASA Feature

NASA Tests New Robotic Refueling Technologies


03.05.2014 - NASA has successfully concluded a remotely controlled test of new technologies that would empower future space robots to transfer hazardous oxidizer—a type of propellant—into the tanks of satellites in space today.

Concurrently on the ground, NASA is incorporating results from this test and the Robotic Refueling Mission on the International Space Station to prepare for an upcoming ground-based test of a full-sized robotic servicer system that will perform tasks on a mock satellite client. > Go to NASA Feature
