A module for a payload that utilizes individual grippers in which each fill to a conical shape from an interior wall of the module toward a payload in the module. The shape of the grippers provides a holding strength on and lateral stability for the payload. The angle of the conical shape transfers the axial force of the payload into a tensional load on the gripper where it has comparatively greater strength. The conical shape of each gripper allows for more complete capture of a payload in that the grippers fill voids around the payload. Since there ar...


What is claimed is: 1. A module for holding a payload in position, said module comprising: a plurality of grippers, each individual gripper fillable to a conical shape from an interior wall of said module to a longitudinal axis of said module wherein each of said grippers is positioned to be in contact with a surface of the payload by an extending action resulting from fluid supplied to and filling each individual gripper with the contact acting to secure the payload; a passageway fluidly connected to supply fluid to said plurality of grippers and to ea...
