Canadarm2's Latching End Effector (LEE)

2018-07-11 - A close-up of Canadarm2's Latching End Effector (LEE), the robotic arm's "hand."

Three snare cables inside the LEE ensure a strong grip when Canadarm2 is anchored to the exterior of the International Space Station, or during a cosmic catch, when the arm grapples and berths an unpiloted resupply ship to the orbiting laboratory. (Credit: NASA)
