PROJECT TITLE :
Peircing the Extraterrestrial Surface: Integrated Robotic Drill for Planetary Exploration
As we explore our solar system and different extraterrestrial bodies, the subsurface plays a important role in allowing us to peer back to the history of a particular body, looking for keeps or signs that it could are habitable. This will be achieved by employing a form of drill or penetrator, though traditional technologies require massive lots to supply an overhead force (OHF) that pushes the drill into the subsurface. Twin reciprocating drilling (DRD) may be a new biologically inspired technology primarily based on the wood wasp ovipositor. It consists of 2 reciprocating backward-facing teethed halves that generate a drilling force that reduces the required overhead penetration force and mass needs. The Surrey Area Centre (SSC) has overseen the look, development, and testing of an indication-of-concept model with funding from European House Agency. The system is now evolving to include a drive mechanism at intervals the drill head and bays for scientific instrumentation.
