The Special Purpose Dexterous Manipulator (SPDM) is Canada’s latest contribution to the International Space Station. This robot builds on earlier designs by MD Robotics, such as the Canadarm and Canadarm 2. Outfitted with two highly maneuverable arms and interchangeable tools, Dextre is designed to carry out many of the tasks currently performed by astronauts. Not only does this innovation reduce the risks to human life in space, but the technology is currently being miniaturized for delicate medical procedures here on Earth.
