Future use of JLE
« on: 08/07/2009 02:16 AM »
I have been unable to locate information about future uses of the JLE to deliver payloads to the JEF on KIBO.  I notice a couple of payloads coming up on the HTV (the first being SMILES: delivered this fall on the first HTV).

Is the JLE not on any of the (planned) missions to ISS?  (I understand the possible shuttle extension could easily change this).

Thanks!

No current plan. Extension could change this.

Same story as JLE for the ICC-VLD "VIC" right?

It will be used atleast on STS-132 to bring up 6 more batteries for changeout and some other ORUs.
