Abstract:

The objective for Phase I of this effort is to develop a design for an advanced mission payload handling system that provides the combined functionality of a pallet jack, fork truck, and an overhead gantry crane. The proposed mission payload handling system, Loading for Naval Resupply Division (LNRD), will be modeled and simulated to establish the feasibility of the system. It will be battery powered and remotely operated by a single operator. The system will weigh less than 1500 lbs. and will have a deck load of less than 150 pounds per square inch when transporting a payload. LNRD will be adaptable and use mecanum wheels to allow maneuverability in tight spaces while transporting and loading payloads. For this effort QinetiQ North America is expected to provide design support and information on their Shipboard Weapons Loader.
