Retractable Robotic Anchor for Hard Rock and Granular Soils, Phase II

Metadata Updated: May 2, 2019

ProtoInnovations, LLC, is developing an innovative retractable robotic anchor that works in hard rock and granular soils permitting anchoring and subsequent repositioning of a lander, rover, or other equipment. Our primary goal is to support a number of mission targets to Mars, the Moon, and asteroids. This technology would be particularly useful for missions involving extreme terrain mobility, small body/microgravity mobility, and forceful interaction between a planetary surface system and its environment (e.g. drilling, digging, etc.) These missions are all ranked as High Priorities in NASA's Robotics, Tele-robotics, and Autonomous Systems Roadmap Technology Area 04 (April 2012).
