AbstractABLAZE proposes to develop an INLS module that houses a motion base able to stabilize the attitude and movement of the LMSR ramp while the vehicle is discharging from the LMSR and crossing the ramp. The vehicle will exit the ramp onto the motion base, at which time, the motion base will then seamlessly change its mode to sync to the motion of the INLS while at the same time lowering the vehicle to the deck of the INLS. Once the motion platform has lowered itself to INLS deck level, the vehicle is able to drive off of the motion base onto another section of the INLS. The motion base will then re-sync with the LMSR ramp, raising and adjusting its attitude and motion compensation to stabilize the ramp.
