Abstract
Tethers Unlimited, Inc. proposes to develop the Remote Anchoring Module (RAM), a launch-able anchoring system that can be used to quickly set and test an anchor point at a remote location without the need for an on-site operator. The RAM system deploys a high-strength cable between itself and the operator during launch. After landing, it uses a simple self-righting mechanism to orient a hybrid drill/auger mechanism capable of securing the module to a wide variety of surfaces. It is designed for low cost production suitable for expendable use.
