One of the most important elements contributing to the effectiveness and efficiency of Navy and Marine Corps sea-based aviation support systems is the movement of aircraft components, munitions, and other aviation support materiel on the flight deck, hangar deck, and throughout the other spaces on the ship. On a typical large deck aircraft carrier, this function consumes many thousands of labor hours, ties up hundreds of personnel, and has hundreds of equipment items dedicated for this purpose. This project developed an Omnidirectional Robotic Transport Platform (OTP) to improve materiel transport throughout the aircraft carrier.
