Return to Celebrating Apollo

A7L Remote Control Unit (RCU)

The remote control unit, or RCU, allowed the astronaut to inspect the status of and adjust his suit's portable life support system (PLSS). The chest-mounted camera also mounted to the RCU.

The Apollo Lunar Surface Journal has a page about the Apollo remote control unit.

This particular unit differs in a number of ways from most RCUs I've seen, leading me to believe that this was some sort of R&D model.

As of now, I have not yet sorted through all of my pictures of the RCU, but some other page references this location. Thus, this is a "place holder" version right now, with only the pictures actually referenced. Come back some time later to see if I've finished up, or drop me an email to request me to prioritize the rest of these pictures.
