Modular Actuators for Space Applications

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

Modular Actuators for Space Applications
Rocketstar Robotics is proposing the development of a modern dual drive actuator. Rocketstar has put together numerous modern concepts for modular actuators that feature gear ratios on the order of 1000:1 and would be ideal candidates for many space applications. These actuators are evolutionary advancements of actuators that are currently in use today and offer performance benefits over heritage counterparts including; higher torque margins, flexible gear ratios, flexible gearing components, higher specific torque and the ability to be non redundant, electrically redundant or fully mechanically and electrically redundant.
