Suits Perform Flawlessly On Five EVAs
Hamilton Sundstrand has reason to celebrate the recent
successful completion of STS-123. The space suit the company
designed performed flawlessly during more and longer space walks
than ever before in International Space Station history.
The space walks (EVAs) occurred throughout the 16-day STS-123
mission to the International Space Station, during which the suit
facilitated five EVAs totaling over 30 hours.
In addition to allowing preliminary deployment of the Japanese
Kibo laboratory, the EVAs also accommodated assembly of the Special
Purpose Dexterous Manipulator, also known as Dextre, a
Canadian-built robot that will help with future maintenance and
service of the International Space Station.
Other EVAs were performed to stow
the Orbiter Boom Sensor System onto the station's main truss, and
to demonstrate shuttle tile repair materials using the Tile Repair
"Hamilton Sundstrand is pleased and proud to contribute to our
nation's space exploration program," said Ed Francis, vice
president and general manager of Hamilton Sundstrand Space, Land
& Sea. "Our people work extremely hard to meet and exceed all
STS-123, the longest space shuttle mission ever to the ISS, was
the 122nd space shuttle flight, the 25th to the station, and the
second of six flights planned for 2008.
