The #Bartolomeo platform developed by Airbus for @Space_Station has been delivered to the Kennedy Space Center marking a further step towards something never before seen in space: becoming the 1st commercial research platform to be attached to the #ISS.

ISS Daily Summary Report – 3/31/2020

Mobil Servicing System (MSS) Operations: Today, robotics ground controllers (ROBO) powered up the MSS and performed a Space Station Remote Manipulator System (SSRMS) walk-off to Mobile Base System (MSB) 1. Once the SSRMS was located on MBS 1, ROBO commanded an SSRMS maneuver to grapple the Special Purpose Dexterous Manipulator (SPDM), currently holding the Bartolomeo platform, positioned on the US Lab Power Data Grapple Fixture (PDGF). Once grappled, ROBO commanded the SPDM to release the US Lab PDGF and maneuvered the SSRMS and SPDM to the Mobile Transporter (MT) translation position. Overnight tonight, ROBO will translate the MT from Work Site (WS) 2 to WS 6 in preparation for the Bartolomeo outrigger deployment and fit check. These tasks are being performed in preparation for the Bartolomeo platform installation on the Columbus module.

The European external platform ‘Bartolomeo’ is an enhancement of the ISS European Columbus Module and its infrastructure. Designed to meet user requirements from the commercial and institutional sector, Bartolomeo is a new external payload hosting facility on the ram side of Columbus that is mechanically attached to the ram-facing primary and secondary trunnions, and uses the Columbus Parking Position Interface (PAPOS) for electrical and data interfacing.

ISS Daily Summary Report – 4/01/2020

Mobil Servicing System (MSS) Operations: Tonight, robotics ground controllers (ROBO) will power up the MSS and maneuver the Space Station Remote Manipulator System (SSRMS) and the Special Purpose Dexterous Manipulator (SPDM) to install the newly arrived Bartolomeo Science Platform. Installation is expected to be completed on Thursday morning at ~1:00 am CT.   Once installed, ROBO will finish deploying the remaining platform booms Thursday evening at ~9:00 pm CT.

Job done! Demanding technical operations are now complete & the Airbus built #Bartolomeo platform has been mounted on the #ISS, on the @esa Columbus laboratory. Getting closer to more commercial research in low Earth Earth globe asia-australia orbit!

Airbus and Xenesis have signed a contract for a payload slot on the International Space Station (ISS) Bartolomeo platform for the demonstration of their Xen-Hub optical communication space terminal.

I've looked closer at Bartolomeo payload preparation pictures.
Bartolomeo actually has 11 Gold2 interfaces. The eight multipurpose payload Gold2 interfaces are connected to the platform. These can accommodate 12 payloads.
GOLD7 (zenith) and Gold8 (Nadir/ earth facing) only have one blue power/data connector, the others have two.

Gold 9 (single connector) is mounted on the arm that is connected with the thrunion. Gold10 is at the arm on the corner (45deg arm). Both Gold 9 and Gold 10 will be used for antenna, most likely this will replace the ColAIS system.
The last Gold2 is for the OSIRISv3 laser communication system, it is mounted on the arm pointing to the earth (nadir). It also only has one connector.
I think these three payloads and ColKa will be installed during or shortly after the Bartolomeo/ColKa EVA.

And ESA presented the Euro Material Ageing facility.

You are not the only one getting older. It happens to materials too, even more so outside the @Space_Station, where radiation, vacuum and extreme temperatures make them age faster. @esa is looking for 45 samples that will spend months on #Bartolomeo.

I'm wondering what is the status of Bartolomeo?
During the EVA's there was trouble connecting the cables to Columbus PAPOS (Payload Parking Position Interface).
During EVA-73 they couldn't connect the P2-J2 connection. Is this connection still not made?
What is the consequence of this for Bartolomeo? Is Bartolomeo partially usable or is this connection really required?

Any news on when they are going to install payloads onto Bartolomeo?
And when they are going to take Bartolomeo into operation?

Any news on when they are going to install payloads onto Bartolomeo?
And when they are going to take Bartolomeo into operation?

On their ISS R&D presentation - during the Q&A I heard mention of 2022. 

Those panel discussions / Q&A should eventually be available via YouTube (I think that's what was mentioned). 

In the meantime, here is a link to their full presentation

Bartolomeo will finally be getting its first payload! Norway's Multi-Needle Langmuir Probe (m-NLP) experiment is set to fly to the ISS on Cygnus NG-19, launching on 1 August 2023. Once on orbit, it will be deployed via the JEM Airlock and installed on the Bartolomeo platform.
