Unique to SeaBotix hybrid/crawler systems is the combination of a highly efficient attraction device and drive mechanism. The patented VRAM attractor produces an amazing 28 kg f of attractive force while the tracked drive system produces a further amazing 12 kg f of pulling force. This powerful combination provides a capability in demanding conditions where other systems fail.
The Little Benthic Crawler (LBC) is available for rental and is ideal for all types of hull inspection and hull search tasks including location and detection of maritime improvised explosive devices (IED).
