Abstract: We propose a ship deck integrated EM linear motion system using advanced linear motor technology for two dimensional motion that is immune to power loss and heavy seas. The system is extremely lightweight, modular with graceful degradation in case of local damage. It does not use wheels, rails, or magnetic levitation.
Benefits: Extremely low speed, high power integrated linear motion technology has many applications on ship board and assembly lines for moving heavy equipment in two dimensions securely. Other key features of the technology is its light weight and low cost.
