How to move satellites without a crane

Moving a satellite can be a delicate process.  For Lockheed Martin, moving a satellite into a test chamber that did not have crane access was going to be a nightmare.  Luckily, all they had to do was insert AeroGo air caster load modules underneath the support legs.  Using the load modules and an air control console, they moved the 10,656 lb. SBIRS (Space Based Infrared System) satellite by hand to the exact position in the test chamber.  By using AeroGo’s air caster rigging system, Lockheed eliminated the costly alternative of extending the crane, protected their epoxy floors, and maintained clean room cleanliness.
