Heidelberg Engineering has announced that its SPECTRALIS imaging platform with the company’s next-generation OCT2 Module has been successfully installed at the International Space Station (ISS) and is now fully operational. NASA launched the SPECTRALIS to the ISS aboard the Antares 230 Cygnus CRS OA-9, also known as Orbital Sciences CRS Flight 9E, from Wallops Island, Virginia, last May.
“With this advanced OCT technology, it is easier for the astronauts to capture high-quality images in even less time. Working in such an environment, there is significant value placed on efficiency that doesn’t compromise quality,” said Arianna Schoess Vargas, CEO.
