Medigus (NASDAQ:MDGS) (TASE:MDGS), a medical device company developing minimally invasive endosurgical tools and a leader in direct visualization technology, today announced that the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), has incorporated Medigus’ micro ScoutCam 8.0 HD, the world’s smallest HD camera and illumination solution, into its Visual Inspection Poseable Invertebrate Robot 2 (VIPIR2).

As quoted in the press release:

RRM3 builds on the first two phases of International Space Station technology demonstrations that tested tools, technologies, and techniques to refuel and repair satellites in orbit. NASA’s second phase of the Robotic Refueling Mission incorporated micro ScoutCam™ 1.2 at the end of a deployable video borescope to demonstrate camera inspection capabilities in May 2015 – making RRM3 the second project between NASA and Medigus. The collaboration is the result of an official tender bid with the United States government.

“Medigus is honored to support NASA on RRM3, which is crucial for advancing technologies that will allow replenishing vital supplies in space,” said Chris Rowland, Chief Executive Officer, Medigus. “We pride ourselves in our ability to offer custom-tailored optics and seamless integration, and believe our innovative technology will greatly contribute to this next phase of the mission.”
