EOS And Lockheed Join Forces Against Space Junk


We have around 2k artificial satellites orbiting our planet, and every instant, the controllers of those birdies fear for the safety of their machines. What do they fear, a stray comet, a meteor or an asteroid? 385 more words

Lockheed Martin 將為美國海軍測試自家製的 FORTIS 外骨骼裝

早前有報導指出,南韓的大宇集團已經為旗下港口的工人配備了外骨骼裝,目前可以讓他們輕鬆地拿起 30kg 的重物,而美國海軍亦將會測試類似的裝置了。Lockheed Martin 宣佈已經獲得了美國海軍的合同,將會測試兩副自家製造的 FORTIS 外骨骼裝。Lockheed Martin 指出 FORTIS 是不需要外來能源去推動的,所以重量較輕,能輔助用戶拿重物的原理就是,裝置懂得將原本施加在用戶身上的重量轉移到地上,所以大家能從上圖見到裝置的關節和底部,都是有接觸地面的。

這個測試的最終目的就是看看到底它能否用在海軍船廠,因為修理船隻時往往涉及一些很重的工具。Lockheed Martin 表示假如工人穿了這副裝置,那就可以更持久地拿著重物,疲勞的感覺也會隨之減少。而且,FORTIS 是有人體工學設計,所以不會阻礙到工人的行動。最後,有關這宗測試的很多詳細都沒有被透露,包括測試的期限以及裝置的重量等,希望他日會公佈研究結果吧。
