ATR has developed a system concept for the transfer of ISO containers between ships at sea. The work was performed under an NSWC SBIR. The concept utilizes a SCARA-type robotic crane with a RoboCrane attached to the end of the arm using a "Spider" hoisting mechanism to help minimize the stowed footprint of the crane. As part of this project, ATR has also Investigated concepts for using a gondola with a footprint compatible with TEU ISO containers to transfer up to 20 soldiers with equipment backpacks.
