RRM-tool.jpgOmitron supported NASA's Space Servicing Capabilities Office (SSCO) with its Robotic Refueling Mission (RRM). The RRM payload was delivered to the International Space Station (ISS) by STS-135, the final flight for Atlantis. The goal of RRM is to demonstrate technologies needed for the on-orbit refueling and servicing of satellites. As a payload on the exterior of ISS, it accomplishes this by providing tools, flight-like satellite interfaces, and a simulated fuel system for manipulation by ISS's Special Purpose Dexterous Manipulator (SPDM) robot arm.


Omitron contributed to the development of the ground system and operations facility

Supported payload ground I&T
Developed T&C user interface software
Developed an RRM software simulator
Outfitted the Goddard Satellite Servicing Control Center (GSSCC)
Collaborated on the writing of operations procedures
Helped train the RRM Operations Team
Participated in joint simulations with multiple NASA centers

Omitron provided post-launch payload operations support

Real-time support during ISS delivery and payload activation
Support for the March 2012 demonstration

Omitron's ground system and operations support will continue in the future, with the next round of demonstration operations planned for late 2012.
