VRR is pushing boundaries by taking on a contract for the development of containers used in international space programs.
The containers will be used to transport a variety of solar array wings in a convenient and most cost-effective way. The solar array wings are highly sensitive and require utmost protection during transport by road, air and sea. All developed containers will be based on the maximum dimensions of a lower deck PMC pallet position in wide-body aircraft.
The design specifications for this project include amongst other cleanliness (cleanroom quality, whereby the container is designed such to generate a minimum of air contamination).
The solar array wings will be mounted on a vibration adapter, which will be installed onto a energy absorbing system. Other special features make the handling and shipment easier and safer.
