Richmond BC (SPX) Mar 22, 2007
MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates have announced that they have signed a contract with IHI Aerospace of Japan for the implementation phase of the information solution it has developed to provide guidance for cargo transfer operations on orbit.

As Japan prepares for the launch, installation and operation of its space experiment module Kibo on the International Space Station, astronauts will use an MDA-supplied observation and guidance solution to safely load an Exposed Pallet containing equipment and supplies onto the H2 Transfer Vehicle while it is docked at the International Space Station.

This latest contract consists of delivering one solution for installation on the first flight model of the H2 Transfer Vehicle.
