LNRD, a compact multi-stage telescopic boom lift system with steerable wheel drives and outriggers for stability and weight distribution is ideally suited to shipboard material handling applications. Robotic Research is a small engineering firm committed to finding innovative, cost-effective solutions in unmanned systems development. Target platforms include both LCS variants. LNRD satisfies the Navy’s “Advanced Shipboard Mission Payload Handling System” requirements by providing the capability to rapidly reconfigure both variants of the LCS for a variety of missions. LRND provides more flexibility in lifting, transporting and maneuvering payloads than current material handling equipment systems, allowing payloads to be picked from and placed to locations not attainable by current systems. Additionally, the payload center-of-gravity can be adjusted to enhance stability while in transport.
