Artist's impression showing the European Robotic Arm (ERA) on the outside of Multi-purpose Laboratory Module (MLM) of the International Space Station. The robotic arm is moving the payload to a temporary storage location.
ERA will be able to work with the new Russian airlock, being able to transfer small payloads directly from inside to outside the ISS and vice versa. This will reduce the EVA set-up time for astronauts and allow for cooperative tasks for ERA with astronauts.
