Research Institution
The flexFORCE engineering team has completed assessment of the critical technical factors required for successful ASP deployment (weight, pointing accuracy, control response, actuation power required, failure modes and effects, scalability, and manufacturability). The team has evaluated the ASP operational environment and requirements, developed a preliminary system design, and executed both dynamic and static computer models of the preliminary design. The computer simulations predict that the flexFORCE ASP will weigh less than 40 lbs and provide sufficient stability and accuracy to enable a greater than 5:1 increase in hit probability compared to the existing mount. FlexFORCE proposed to build and test a fully functional prototype ASP suitable for ground and flight testing.
