Soft Transportation Bags: In the framework of Space Science programs Kayser Italia has developed the Soft Ttransportation Bag (STB) concept to provide a soft pouch for
the upload, download and storage of flight hardware.
STB aim: The STBs are pouches that provide a soft accommodation and, where required, a thermally controlled environment for the flight hardware, including Experiment Containers, Experiment Units and Facilities as well. The STBs are designed and manufactured ad-hoc for each mission.
STB performances: STBs have been largely used to support flight hardware transportation. On the whole, more than one hundred pouches were manufactured and used to upload and download flight hardware to/from spacecrafts.
