The Canadarm is actually known as the Shuttle Remote Manipulator System.
WHO WAS THIS DEVELOPED BY?
The Shuttle Remote Manipulator System was developed by the National Research Council of Canada a industrial team that involves Spar, CAE and DSMA atcon with the help of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
HOW HAS THIS TECHNOLOGY HELPED?
The Canadarm is one of the most famous technological competent
robot Canada has made.
The Mobile Servicing System was built by Canada. It
was Canada’s Contribution to the ISS, because they had used the The Mobile Servicing System to build part off the ISS which was Canada’s contribution.
The Canadarms wrist joints and elbows have cameras to visually inspect the payload and the shuttle itself.
It has setup satellites into orbit, taken many things down to earth that needs to get fixed or has taken many resources down to earth to solve problems like breast cancer and other sicknesses or many other global issues.
The Canadarm takes things out of the the shuttle’s bay and places them on-orbit.
This technolgy helps are environment because the arms can analyze radioactive waste in storage tanks.
HOW IMPORTANT IS THIS TECHNOLoGY TO THE SOCIETY…?
It’s important because we don’t have to risks humankind’s life to fix some type of issue in space, we can just send the Canadarm into space and it will solve the problem without worrying about losing a life of one of an amazing astronaut.
The Canadarm took 110 million dollars to be built.
It has also supported astronauts through out spacewalks.
It has deployed. captured, repaired satellites, maintained equipment and put astronauts in position.
It had built up Canada's reputation on technology also because of the Canadarm they had innovated many new robots to use on the International Space Station.
It's also important because the Canadarm is a very mulity tasking robot it can be used on earth and in space
The Canadarm has put up satellites and those satellites give use mobile service and know we don't use maps because we get our directions from a GPS that gives use directions if we are not assure of their destination.
Parts Of a Canadarm
The Shuttle Remote Manipulator System has many parts that are divided into joints, booms and systems...
shoulder yaw joint
shoulder pitch joint
elbow pitch joint
wrist roll joint
wrist yaw joint
wrist pitch joint.
upper arm boom
lower arm boom
THERMAL PROTECTION SYSTEM
SRMS CONTROL SYSTEM
what are these parts
and what do they do?
what are joints?
Each part of the remote shuttle manipulator system has a simple element called the joint one-degree-of-freedom, which is a motor-driven gearboxes that allow the arms to work like human arms that can bend and turn.
what are booms?
Between the shoulder, elbow and wrist joints were upper and lower booms constructed by graphite-epoxy.

comes back after each shuttle mission.
limited to do up to 160 degrees elbow rotation.
it can handle up to 29,484kg (65,001 pounds) of payload.
has to come back to earth to get repaired.
2 cameras (one on the writ other on elbow).
the arm length is 15 meters and 49.2 feet
stays permanently in space
full joint rotation up to 540.
can handle up to 116,000kg and 255,736 pounds.
designed to be repaired in space by the orbital replacement unit (oru).
4 color cameras one at each side of elbows and other 2 on the latching end effectors.
the arm length is 17.6 meters and 57.7 feet
THIS IS THE CANADARM'S DIAGRAM
WHEN WAS THIS DEVELOPED
In 1974 Canada agreed to create the first Shuttle Remote Manipulator system. So, Spar, CAE and DSMA atcon formed an industrial team with the National Research Council to oversee the project.
The Canadarm went into space the first time on November, 12th, 1981 and from then on it has taken 90 trips to space and sadly after several successful trips to space it had retired in 2011.
The Remote Manipulator System had 5 arms which were developed and sent to NASA on different dates. Arm 1 was sent on April 1981, arm 2 was sent on January 1983, arm 3 was sent on December 1983, arm 4 was sent on March 1985 and arm 5 was sent on August 1993.
WHY WAS THIS DEVELOPED?
This technology was developed to do many tasks that humankind had to go into space for. This is a very intelligent and amazing device that knows what it’s doing also if they need to put force on something it knows how much force to use. This one of the most technological and robotic device that has ever been made. Also this device goes up into space with every single space shuttle so if there’s any problem that occurs during the space travel the Canadarm can fix the issue and make the space trip successful and useful
