GITAI Develops a 10 Meter Robotic Arm for Space and Completes the Proof-of-Concept Demonstration (TRL 3)
TORRANCE, Calif., Aug. 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- GITAI USA Inc. (GITAI), the world's leading space robotics company, developed "S10," a 10-meter autonomous robotic arm for commercial space stations, which are being developed by several companies in the US. The GITAI S10 has successfully completed various tests corresponding to level 3 of NASA's Technology Readiness Level (TRL). Here we release a video of this technical demonstration.
By March 2023, the GITAI S10 is scheduled to conduct a similar demonstration test in an underwater experimental facility which simulates micro-gravity, in order to achieve TRL 6 (System/subsystem model or prototype demonstration in a relevant environment). GITAI will respond to the diversifying demand for work in space by adding this 10-meter robotic arm, GITAI S10, to its product lineup in addition to the already announced 2-meter robotic arm, GITAI S2.
