There are a number of potential NASA applications for six degree of freedom force and torque transducers which are able survive these harsh conditions. They include: * Providing loading feedback to a robot arm controller about the arm's end effector, such as a robotic drill or corer. The feedback can allow the operation to be adjusted for best performance. * Providing loading feedback from an end effector on a teleoperated robotic arm, perhaps on the ISS or another body in space. * Providing loading feedback for limbs in a Robonuat-type application. There are a number of potential non-NASA commerical applications for six degree of freedom force and torque transducers which are able survive these harsh conditions. They include: * Robotic arm loading feedback for remote vehicles operating on the moon, such as would be needed for commercial exploration of the moon. * Sensing loads in a space tug when it connects to a satellite that is being moved to a another orbit. * Sensing loads caused by an experiment or operation being conducted in orbit. * Providing loading feedback experiments and remotely operated vehicles in the cold of the Earth's polar regions. * Providing loading information for tasks conducted in a near vacuum environment.
