The docking target system for the Dragon module, the DragonEye, was tested during STS-127 by mounting it near the docking port on Space Shuttle Endeavour and using it while approaching the International Space Station. The DragonEye's LIDAR and thermal imaging capabilities were both checked out. The DragonEye flew again on STS-133, during February and March 2011, for further testing.

On November 22, 2010, NASA announced that the FAA had issued a reentry license for Dragon, the first such license ever awarded to a commercial vehicle.
