Abstract
THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP A TRUE CENTERLINE IMAGING MODULE FOR USE WITH EXTERNAL GRASPING END EFFECTORS. IT WILL DESIGN A CENTERLINE IMAGING SYSTEM FOR EXTERNAL GRASPING END EFFECTORS, FABRICATE A PROTOTYPE OF THE CENTERLINE IMAGING MODULE, AND PARTICIPATE IN THE TESTING OF THE SYSTEM AT NASA-MSFC. THE NEED FOR THIS TYPE OF IMAGING SYSTEM WAS IDENTIFIED DURING THE COURSE OF A PREVIOUS STUDY TO DEVELOP INFLATABLE END EFFECTORS FOR HANDLING DELICATE COMPOSITE STRUCTURAL COMPONENTS. SINCE THE FIRM HAS DESIGNED AND FABRICATED AN EXTERNAL GRASPING END EFFECTOR CURRENTLY IN USE AT NASA, IN CONJUNCTION WITH, THE P-FMA AT MSFC, THIS UNIT WILL BE USED TO EVALUATE THE CENTERLINE IMAGING MODULE TO MINIMIZE THE COST OF THE PROJECT.
