CCS (Command and Control Subsystem) Bay Assembly, Voyager Spacecraft

This is a component of the Voyager 2 attitude/control system. It is a flight-qualified piece of spare hardware, which was used in laboratory simulations to resolve in-flight problems encountered by the Voyager 2 spacecraft.

Voyager 2 was an unmanned probe, which, in 1986, passed close to the planet Uranus to transmit images of its surface.

NASA - Jet Propulsion Laboratory transferred this object to the Museum in 1999.
