MRMC for Space Exploration
Mark Roberts Motion Control equipment used in the exploration of Space? Yes! MRMC are proud to have provided equipment used for the development of space craft being developed by two separate companies developing the next generation of craft to replace the retired space shuttle. The companies involved are developing the different aspects of the space craft that will be docking with the international space station. Boeing Aerospace (www.boeing.com) chose to use a Modula rig for their development of their equipment while Space-X (www.spacex.com) used a Milo for testing their docking sequences and verifying the accuracy of their equipment. Both rigs proved invaluable in developing the automated docking sequence that will be used to join the craft to the international space station in space.
