The Emergency Meal Kitchen Services (EMKS) unit is a portable and compact kitchen unit that can provide three days' worth of food and water for at least 500 people, in any disaster location. We constructed models in terms of design criteria relating to weight, transportability, and food preparation capabilities. To study uncontrollable excitations during transportation as a helicopter sling load, we created models of pendulums to study the effect of initial angles on the swinging motion. To reduce these oscillations, we proposed a control mechanism that acts on the pendulum's pivot point to dampen out the oscillations with the help of a phase delay. Utilizing this mechanism will reduce the swinging, thus making the EMKS easier and safer to transport by a helicopter sling load.
