Abstract:

Not Available One of the most important elements contributing to the effectiveness and efficiency of Navy and Marine corps sea-based aviation support systems is the movement of aircraft components, munitions, and other aviation support materiel on the flight deck, hangar deck, and throughout the other spaces on the ship. On a typical large deck aircraft carrier, this function consumes many thousands of labor hours, ties up hundreds of personnel, and has hundreds of equipment items dedicated for this purpose. This project will begin the development of an Omnidirectional Transport Platform (OTP) to improve materiel transport throughout the aircraft carrier. This platform features powered, omnidirectional wheels, a remote control operator interface, and compatibility with existing lift and materiel transfer equipment such as engine lifts and munitions carriers. With Cybernet's background in the development of multi-axis robots, coordinated motor control, human-machine interface, and control electronics, we will focus on the omnidirectional wheel technology during the course of the Phase I effort, culminating in the creation of a prototype omnidirectional platform. This omnidirectional platform will demonstrate core technologies relevant to the development of a full scale Omnidirectional Transport Platform during the Phase II activity.
