Raven is Heading to the International Space Station

A technology module known as Raven will launch onboard SpaceX 10 to the International Space Station bringing NASA one step closer to an autopilot capability. Raven will test foundational technologies that will enable autonomous rendezvous in space, meaning they will not necessitate any human involvement. This technology, when matured, will provide autonomous rendezvous capability for future missions.
