Cambridge, MA -Draper Laboratory announced Oct. 10 that productivity for crew and ground controllers will improve when its Timeliner automation software is used for the first time on board the International Space Station (ISS). The software was installed during the Space Shuttle Atlantis' current ISS Assembly Flight, 9A (STS-112), which launched on Oct. 7 and began its return flight on Oct. 16. Timeliner software will automate functions previously performed by space station crews and ground operators. For the current mission, Timeliner will be used to autonomously activate and control experiment payloads in the station's new Microgravity Science Glovebox.
