Initially, the robot hotel will host two Robotic External Leak Locators (RELL) that are used to detect leaks outside the ISS.

The RiTS will launch today overseas Space-X' Dragon Spacecraft, on a Falcon 9 rocket at around 12:50 p.m. from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.

NASA has names the new toolbox Robotic Tool Stowage Assembly, or RiTS, and nicknamed it a "Robot Hotel" because it will store robotic equipment in ideal conditions, outside the station.

RELL was first launched in 2015 and was so successful that it launched a second one this year for backup. The robots have been previously used and stored inside the ISS, but since space inside the ship is the most optimal spot for storing, its better for work-flow and ease of storing to have them outside the station. It depends on the availability of mission controllers on the ground and station crew. International Space Station Program Manager Kenny Todd says "Santa's sleigh is certified for the vacuum of space". Eastern Time from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. The leak detectors have mass spectrometers that can find leaks from the space station, NASA officials said. The robotic tools are on board the station right now.

After its launch, the RiTS will be installed via a spacewalk by astronauts, and it will then stay on the outside of the station.

RiTS was developed by the Satellite Servicing Projects Division at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, in partnership with NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston.
