At Astrotech, Titusville, Fla., an umbrella-topped crane is secured to an ORU Transfer Device (OTD), a U.S.-built crane that will be stowed on the International Space Station's Unity module for use during future ISS assembly missions. Gathered around the OTD and crane are (left to right) Ben Greene (kneeling), with Lockheed Martin; Michael Slataper, with Ratheon; Charles Franca, with Johnson Space Center; Robert Wilkes, with Lockheed Martin; Manfred Nordhoff (back to camera), with Daimler-Chrysler Aerospace (DASA); and Carl Figiel and Harald Schnier (far right), both with (DASA). The OTD will be attached to the nonpressurized International Cargo Carrier (ICC) in the background. The ICC fits inside the payload bay of the orbiter. The ICC will also carry the SPACEHAB Oceaneering Space System Box (SHOSS), a logistics items carrier. SHOSS can hold a maximum of 400 pounds of equipment and will carry items to be used during STS-96 and future ISS assembly flights. The ICC will fly on mission STS-96, targeted for launch on May 20.
