NASA has incorporated the micro ScoutCam 1.2 into its Visual Inspection Poseable Invertebrate Robot (VIPIR) tool. VIPIR is a robotic, maneuverable, borescope inspection tool being tested as part of the Robotic Refueling Mission, an experiment on the International Space Station that has been demonstrating tools, technologies, and techniques for on-orbit satellite servicing since 2011.
As the smallest camera in the world, according to the company, the micro ScoutCam 1.2 is used for medical and industrial applications including gastroenterology, cardiology, dentistry, robotics, remote non-destructive testing (NDT), and micro-drilling inspection.
VIPIR launched to the International Space Station in July 2014 as part of the second phase of NASA’s Robotic Refueling Mission. “NASA is steadily maturing a set of robotic technologies that could help prolong the lives of satellites on orbit, thereby providing new capabilities for the Agency,” said Benjamin Reed, deputy project manager of NASA’s Satellite Servicing Capabilities Office. “Medigus’ micro ScoutCam 1.2 met the requirements for VIPIR’s borescope camera, and will demonstrate inspection capabilities once Robotic Refueling Mission operations begin,” Reed added.
