RRM3 () is an ISS attached experiment to test refueling technologies in space.
RRM3 builds on the first two phases of International Space Station technology demonstrations that tested tools, technologies, and techniques to refuel and repair satellites in orbit. RRM3 will demonstrate innovative methods to store, transfer and freeze standard cryogenic fluid in space.
The mission is scheduled to launch to the space station in 2018. It has a projected two-year life on station, though NASA intends to accomplish RRM3's objectives within the first year. RRM3 is developed and operated by the Satellite Servicing Projects Division at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, under direction of NASA's Space Technology Mission Directorate.
