01 Jul The Canadarm
In the early 1980’s, Ebco was contracted by a partner of the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) to construct components to be used on the International Space Station. Specifically, Ebco helped to work on the Canadarm, a robotic arm used on the Space Station to deploy, maneuver and capture payloads. Today the Canadarm is touted as Canada’s most famous robotic and technological achievement. It is so popular that it has earned its placement on the current Canadian five dollar bill.
