Not Available Creare proposes to develop a compact and highly versatile system to move aviation support materiel safely and rapidly throughout shipboard spaces with a minimum of personnel. The self-powered materiel handling unit is reconfigurable on-the-fly and employs rubber-shod holonomic wheels and a hybrid electric drive system with onboard engine-generator set for operational flexibility. In Phase I, we will develop a preliminary design for a Multipurpose Mobility Platform (MP)2 through engineering design and trade studies to optimize the holonomic wheels and their drive and control, the power system, and the architecture of mission-specific structural adaptations. In Phase II, we will design, fabricate, and test a working prototype (MP)2, including shipboard testing.
