The CMLG is a key technological component of our project automatic container transport by air shuttle. The Container Mover and Landing Gear is used to the secure the payload to the aircraft. It is also a landing gear that provides handling functions of the container, once on ground. Thanks to the reduced model presented in this video engineers demonstrate the operational interest of this innovation and imagine further improvements.
This video shows the gripping of the containers and the on-ground controllability of our CMLG.
Soon … the docking of the CMLG to the envelope and a first scaled demonstration of our concept of Automatic Container Transport by Air Shuttle. (NATAC)
