Transphibian platform

Manufacturer: iRobot Maritime Systems


The iRobot Transphibian, a fin-powered vehicle that is both a mobile UUV and a bottom crawler, can autonomously insert itself into the water and operate in a very shallow area. The fins enable the robot to navigate with 6 degrees of freedom – even in surge – to avoid obstacles and maneuver in tight spaces. Expandable and adaptable, Transphibian supports a wide variety of defense, first responder and commercial applications.
