  1. Collective Protection for Military Working Dogs

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: CBD08103

    Shelter enclosures for military working dogs in the event of a CB attack is a technology gap identified by the Joint Requirements Office. Important parameters to consider in the design of protective enclosures include low weight and size to minimize transport requirements; rapid setup; and accommodation of canine physiological and psychological comfort needs while providing protection against CB ...

  3. SASSI: Subsystems for Automated Subsurface Sampling Instruments

    SBC: Honeybee Robotics, Ltd.            Topic: S503

    Autonomous surface sampling systems are necessary, near term, to construct a historical view of planetary significant events; as well as allow for the identification of materials useful for ISRU activities. Paramount to this is exploration missions capable of in-situ analysis of core samples that deliver the stratigraphy of the target. These sample handling technologies must be developed to meet a ...

  4. Dust-Tolerant, Reusable Connection Mechanism for Lunar Environments

    SBC: Honeybee Robotics, Ltd.            Topic: X704

    Lunar dust has been identified as a significant and present challenge in future exploration missions. Significant development is called for in the area of devices and structures that tolerate or mitigate the presence of Lunar dust. Honeybee Robotics Spacecraft Mechanisms Corporation (SMC) seeks to develop methods for mitigating dust accumulation on reusable connection mechanisms, such as will be n ...

  5. Autonomous Utility Connector for Lunar Surface Systems

    SBC: Honeybee Robotics, Ltd.            Topic: N/A

    Lunar dust has been identified as a significant and present challenge in future exploration missions. The interlocking, angular nature of Lunar dust and its broad grain size distribution make it particularly detrimental to mechanisms with which it may come into contact. Honeybee Robotics Spacecraft Mechanisms Corporation (HRSMC) seeks to develop a dust-tolerant, autonomous connector to transmit da ...

  6. A 3-D Miniature LIDAR System for Mobile Robot Navigation

    SBC: Honeybee Robotics, Ltd.            Topic: X703

    Future lunar site operations will benefit from mobile robots, both autonomous and tele-operated, that complement or replace human extravehicular activity. Three-dimensional sensing technology is at the heart of such functionality, enabling reliable navigation in complex, dynamic environments, and serving as a valuable tool for inspection and site survey. Honeybee Robotics is therefore developing ...

  7. One-Meter Class Drilling for Planetary Exploration

    SBC: Honeybee Robotics, Ltd.            Topic: S503

    Robotic planetary exploration missions will need to perform in-situ analysis of rock and/or regolith samples or returning samples back to earth. Obtaining and delivering a sample can be a complex engineering problem, especially if it's done autonomously thousands of miles away. To accommodate future missions, these subsurface access and sample handling technologies must be developed to meet a broa ...

  8. Vacuum Compatible Percussive Dynamic Cone Penetrometer

    SBC: Honeybee Robotics, Ltd.            Topic: X303

    Honeybee Robotics proposes to develop a vacuum compatible percussive dynamic cone penetrometer (PDCP), for establishing soil bin characteristics, with the ultimate intent of taking it to a flight system level. Penetrometers are used to determine the Cone index (CI), which is a composite index influenced by both soil compressibility and shear strength. A dynamic cone penetrometer is used to estima ...

  9. Impact-Actuated Digging Tool for Lunar Excavation

    SBC: Honeybee Robotics, Ltd.            Topic: X301

    Honeybee Robotics proposes to develop a vacuum compatible, impact-actuated digging tool for the excavation of frozen and compacted regolith on the lunar surface and in the permanently shadowed craters of the lunar poles. This technology development effort will address the most challenging aspects of excavation in the lunar environment and work to develop a design relevant to a range of future lun ...

  10. Novel Heat Flow Probe Design and Deployment

    SBC: Honeybee Robotics, Ltd.            Topic: S111

    We propose to develop a novel method for deploying heat flow sensors/heaters in a hole and also a novel approach to subsurface access using a percussive method. The sensor deployment concept consists of a deployable string of thermal sensors/heaters initially housed inside a hollow probe. As envisioned, the deployable sensor string would consist of thermal sensors/heaters mounted to small spring-l ...
