Abstract
SHIP MOTION IMPACT AND SHIP CONFIGURATION CONSTRAINTS WILL BE QUANTIFIED AND USED TO DEVELOP THE REQUIREMENTS FOR MOBILE ROBOTIC SYSTEMS TO PERFORM IN SEAWAY CONDITIONS ABOARD NAVAL SHIPS. BASED UPON THESE REQUIREMENTS, CONCEPTUAL DESIGNS OF SIX MOBILE TELEROBOTIC SYSTEMS TO MEET VARIOUS SHIPBOARD MISSION REQUIREMENTS WILL BE DEVELOPED. THESE DESIGNS WILL BE EVALUATED AS TO EFFECTIVENESS OF MISSION PERFORMANCE. THIS EVALUATION WILL PROVIDE VALIDATION OF SYSTEM MOBILITY DESIGN FEATURES WHICH ARE MOST SUITABLE TO THE SHIPBOARD ENVIRONMENT. ADDITIONALLY, SHIP CONFIGURATION (ARRANGMENT, ACCESSES, COMPARTMENTATION ETC.) WILL BE ANALYZED WITH THE OBJECTIVE OF DEVELOPING DESIGN CHANGES (BOTH FOR BACKFIT AND NEW SHIP DESIGNS) WHICH WILL IMPROVE THE COMPATIBILITY OF THE SHIPBOARD ENVIRONMENT WITH MOBILE ROBOTIC SYSTEMS.
