Continuing with the robotics operations with the Canadarm2 and DEXTRE, this post will demonstrate the SAGE III installation via my ISS and DEXTRE papermodels.
On my previous post, the STP-H5 payload was installed on ELC-1.
On March 2, 2017, the Mobile Servicing System (MSS) was reconfigured for the start of the SAGE III extraction from Dragon’s trunk.
On March 3, 2017, the SAGE III instrument panel (IP) was extracted from the Dragon CRS-10 trunk.
On March 6, 2017, ground controllers maneuvered the Mobile Servicing System translating DEXTRE and Canadarm2 to be in position to remove the Robotics Refueling Mission (RRM).
RRM payload was brought to ISS via STS-135 in July 2011.
Ahead of schedule, ground controllers proceeded to install the SAGE NVP onto ELC-4 with DEXTRE’s arm 1.
On March 8, 2017, the SAGE IP was installed on the SAGE NVP.
On March 9, 2017, ground controllers installed the RRM onto DEXTRE’s EOTP.
Another payload needed to be removed for disposal is the MISSE Flight Support Equipment component (MISSE FSE).
On March 13, 2017, ground controllers temporarily removed a spare Direct Current Switching Unit (DCSU) on ELC-2 pallet to provide access to the removal of the Materials International Space Station Experiment (MISSE).
On March 14, 2017, the MISSE FSE was installed on the trunk.
On March 15, 2017, the RRM was unstowed from DEXTRE’s EOTP and installed on Dragon’s trunk on FRAM 1.
This ends the robotics operations for Dragon CRS-10.
