Monopropellant Powered Hexapod Robot

The goal of this effort is the development of a hexapod robot that incorporates high power-density actuation. Low-level control of the legs is governed by the coordination influences proposed by Cruse et al. The overall goal of the effort is the development and implementation of a legged robot with actuation power density and low-level control approaching that of a biological system.
