Description


Apollo-era Command Module Uprighting System Circuit Breaker panel assembly, 12 x 4 x 10.5, complete with its interior components. Designated Panel 278 to be used after splashdown to energize the system that maneuvered the capsule (if inverted after splashdown in the ‘Stable II position’) to an upright orientation (Stable I) for egress. Assembly interior has a metal label which reads, in part: “Panel Assy, Uprighting System…Serial 06362AAH8667.” Front of the panel has two circuit breakers for air compressors labeled at the top, “Uprighting System,” and two pyro breakers labeled, “S IV B/LM SEP.” A Form 902-W-1 tag is tied to the frame, filled out in a technician’s hand, and marked with several inspection stamps. In fine condition. This system was installed on all Command Modules and would be activated after splashdown if the CM landed upside-down or on its side. The activation of the compressors inflated three spheres at the top of the capsule causing the capsule to roll over onto its heat shield and allow the astronauts to exit through the door. RR Auction COA.
