Introducing the newest member of the FLEET
HELIX Neptune is a multi-functional robot designed to tackle some extreme challenges. Employing patented screw-pontoon technologies, HELIX Neptune is amphibious, making land-water transitions smoothly with no requirement for human intervention, specialty gear or a boat launch ramp.
HELIX Neptune weighs in at 350 kg, with an additional 100 kg spare payload capacity for additional sensors and gear. HELIX Neptune typically travel at 1 m/s, but has additional thrusters to cruise on water at 2-3 m/s.
The robot has high torque motors for hill climbing and traversing through mud, sludge and tailings. Standard payloads include a single beam sonar, sampling tools, and multi-directional camera systems.
