In order to provide the Navy with an efficient, reliable, safe and easy to use means of attaching CMDS magazines to their housings on board aircrafts, Honeybee Robotics Spacecraft Mechanisms Corporation proposes to continue development of an innovative fastening system successfully demonstrated in Phase I. The proposed effort will focus on developing the system to be fully compatible with existing hardware while minimizing any changes to the CMDS design. The Phase 1 designs will be further analyzed, modeled and tested, at the breadboard level, in order to develop a fully optimized system. The optimized design will then be subjected to vibration, temperature, various Mil-STD testing and culminate in field testing in order to verify the system"s performance and establish its qualification and suitability as a replacement fastener. The successful outcome of this Phase II effort will be the installation of the developed fastening system across the Navy"s fleet; as such, there will be a significant focus on planning for transitioning the system in a potential Phase III.
