CIRAS: Commercial Infrastructure for Robotic Assembly and Servicing (CIRAS)

Active Technology Project

Project Introduction

Commercial Infrastructure for Robotic Assembly and Servicing (CIRAS) project is pursuing space-based, robotic assembly of flight hardware and space systems, using innovative technologies including NASA's Tension Actuated Long-reach In-Space Manipulator (TALISMAN) to reduce the costs and potential human hazards associated with hardware transfer and assembly activities. The project aims to: demonstrate robotic reversible joining methods for mechanical and electrical connections; develop a feasible concept to validate space assembly geometries; and demonstrate repeatable module-to-module interfaces for in-space structural assembly.
