An Improved Mobile Trolley for Satellite Test Facility

Abstract

A mobile trolley is a form of mechanical ground support equipment that allows engineers to perform integration work at various parts of the satellite body in a safe manner, thus preventing mishandling of the satellite. Existing mobile trolleys available in the market have several limitations, whereby its height is not adjustable and typical mobile trolley doesn’t have any mechanism to transport a satellite into the thermal vacuum chamber to undergo environmental test. Therefore, this project was proposed to design and develop a Motorised Adjustable Vertical Platform (MAVeP), an improvement to existing mobile trolleys, which has the ability to move around, to increase or decrease its height and finally, to be able to transport the satellite into the thermal vacuum chamber. The MAVeP is expected to provide assistance in the assembly, integration and testing operation without jeopardizing the safety of the spacecraft.)
