Autonomous Mobile On-orbit Diagnostic System (AMODS) to perform on-orbit inspections on conventional spacecraft.

Description

Autonomous Mobile On-orbit Diagnostic System (AMODS) which utilizes CubeSats to perform on-orbit inspections on conventional spacecraft. AMODS comprises a multiple CubeSat arrangement wherein one self-propelled CubeSat will deliver one of several repair CubeSats with manipulable arms to spacecraft for the purpose of providing diagnostic, maintenance and repair services. Refinements from the P design. Utilize previously unused payload space for tool stowage to provide increased arm functionality and will demonstrate the advanced radiation hardened processors to conduct some maneuvers autonomously.
