Hstar proposes a mobile, advanced, agile, and adaptable Mission Module handling (A3M2-Hand) system which is compatible with Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) Mission Modules and common to all LCS configurations. Hstar"s innovative approach separates the lifting and transporting of the Mission Modules into two flexible, modular systems. Key subsystems include: highly maneuverable, reconfigurable Omni-directional mobile platforms with differential crab drive wheel units, powerful, compact, bottom lift jacks with twist lock quick connects and high positioning precision and strength for the various types of Mission Modules, an intelligent, sensor-based control system to maximize safety and ease of use, a simple, ergonomic wireless control unit, and an intuitive operator feedback system for diagnostic capabilities. The A3M2-Hand system builds on technology currently being developed for the A3-Hand LCS shipboard mission payload handling system (SBIR N131-054). For all system architecture, Hstar will utilize a modular approach for maintainability, expandability and flexibility to respond to changing fleet needs and opportunities stemming from maturing new technologies.
