what is the canadarm

The Shuttle Remote Manipulation System (SRMS) or Canadarm1 is a robotic arm affixed to the Space Shuttle

  • Developed by SPAR Aerospace for CSA and NASA
  • Was launched as part of the second Space Shuttle mission with SS Columbia on November 13th, 1981
  • 5 arms delivered to NASA (currently 3 in operation, 1 lost)
What is the Canadarm?
specifications canadarm 1

Roughly corresponds to the human arm (shoulder, elbow, wrist)

  • 15.2 metres long
  • 33 centimetres thick
  • 6 degrees of freedom (2 in shoulder, 1 in elbow, 3 in wrist)
  • 2 cameras (1 on elbow, 1 on wrist)
  • Weighs 410 kilograms
  • Can lift 29 tons in space
Specifications – Canadarm 1
what is it used for

Grabs and manipulates payloads

  • Inspects the exterior of the shuttle or International Space Station (ISS)
  • Provides a mobile ladder for crew
  • Foot restraint for crew
What is it used for?
canadarm 2

The Mobile Servicing System (MSS) or Canadarm 2 is a robotic arm ‘affixed’ to the International Space Station

  • Was launched in April 2001
Canadarm 2
specifications canadarm 2

Larger range of motion than the human arm

  • 17.6 metres long
  • 35 centimetres thick
  • 7 degrees of freedom (3 in shoulder, 1 in elbow, 3 in wrist)
  • 4 cameras (2 on elbow, 1 on each end)
  • Weighs 1800 kilograms
  • Can lift 116 tons in space
Specifications – Canadarm 2
differences

Canadarm 1 is limited by the length of its arm

  • Canadarm 2’s ends are not fixed, they attach to latches on the ISS
  • Canadarm 2 uses end-to-end movement to traverse much of the ISS
