Abstract: Develop an innovative approach for cargo and personnel handling system that requires minimal labor effort by the crew to operate. The cargo and personnel system approach shall be capable of carrier take-offs and landings and not reduce current aircraft capabilities. Demonstrate the feasibility of applying the developed approach in a laboratory environment.
Benefits: The potential commercial application would be expanded to any platform that can utilize a easily reconfigurable package handling system in both the military and commercial markets. Retrofit of C-2A aircraft fleet. Application exploration with other similar cargo aircraft platforms.
