Tekdata's Cryoconnect division, working with the Rutherford and Appleton Laboratory, supported the design phase and manufactured the cryogenic interconnection systems for both the MRC, the Medium Resolution Camera, and the HRC, the High Resolution Camera, which were successfully fitted on the International Space Station during the astronauts' six hour 'spacewalk'.
