I have a question and I hope some fellows here can help me out. I want to know if the Integrated Cargo Carrier ICC Unpressurized Cargo Pallet Frame (see image here) was reused in each shuttle mission or was there always a new one designed and built?

I know that there have been several models of the ICC. I'm just interested in the ICC-G (generic) model. Does anyone has a clue about it?

It was reused. The payloads and the ICC shown in the photo were returned on the same mission.

A better question would be: How many were built? And is there any documentation on which serial numbers flew on which missions?

Not any documentation that would be publicly available.

But this means that just one ICC-G pallet has flown several times, right? Because that is the question. If there have been multiple ICC-Gs than there was just one ICC for one individual mission.

I recall that there were two of them.
