WORK SYSTEMS PACKAGE AUTOMATIC TOOL INTERCHANGE

This report is in microfiche form. The Work Systems Package <WSP> is a remotely-controlled manipulator with tools and support equipment that interfaces with manned or unmanned undersea vehicles to perform ocean-floor salvage, installation and repair tasks. Since bottom time is limited, and visibility is often poor, automation of certain WSP functions would be desirable; tool interchange is one such function. A system to perform this has been developed and has been demonstrated successfully in the laboratory.
