Video: U.S. Navy Engineers Developing Robots to Help Carrier Ordnance Men


Engineers at the Robotics and Intelligent Systems Engineering (RISE) Laboratory at Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division Lakehurst, N.J. are researching how robots can be used to simplify activities on carrier decks.

Specifically, the team is exploring how it can use robotics to reduce the number of sailors needed for the task of moving supplies around on an aircraft carrier’s deck. Ultimately, the goal is to have one sailor use a control panel to direct a robot to do the job that a small team of sailors currently does.

RISE engineers hope the use of robotics will improve efficiency and safety, as well as optimize sailors’ workloads, freeing them from more monotonous jobs.


In this video, we see how RISE lab engineers are working to make life easier on the flight deck - with the help of robots.
