Next Generation Canadarm
The Next Generation Canadarm program focused on the research and development of technologies and techniques for the on-orbit servicing of satellites using robotic systems. Priorities included positioning Canada for strategic space robotics contributions to international space exploration initiatives, maintaining and enhancing space robotics technical expertise and leaderships, and advancing technology and operational readiness levels of on-orbit servicing using ground-based technology.
The program developed hardware and simulations to demonstrate end-to-end on-orbit satellite servicing missions using the Next Generation Small Canadarm (NGSC) and the Next Generation Large Canadarm (NGLC).
