Application: Monolithic attitude control motor frame and system (Patent ID: US20230418308A1)

Lockheed Martin Corp. has filed a patent for a monolithic attitude control motor system that includes a monolithic frame with an outer surface of revolution and multiple side walls defining cavities for attitude control motors. The system is designed such that each motor is placed in a cavity, with adjacent motors sharing a side wall. The structure is configured to withstand pressurization loads generated during motor operation, with the cavities exhibiting a polygon shape that tapers towards the centerline of the structure, providing stability and structural integrity.

Furthermore, the patent describes variations in the polygon shapes of the cavities, such as octagon or hexagon at the outer surface, transitioning to square or rectangular shapes towards the centerline. The design includes specific shapes for the side walls of the cavities, such as triangles and trapezoids, to optimize the structure's performance. The patent also mentions the integration of this monolithic attitude control motor system into vehicles, including air-traveling, water-traveling, and exoatmospheric vehicles, highlighting the versatility and applicability of the technology across different types of vehicles.
