Soldier Systems features Matbock VBSS using Helical Robotics platform

Today, Soldier Systems features the Matbock VBSS (Visit, Board, Search and Seizure) system.  The system uses a Helical Robotics FerroTanker-20 robot.  

Our engineering and manufacturing teams were able to rapidly integrate Matbock's existing equipment to create a rapidly deployable robotic system for shipboard operations that is able to perform in severe weather conditions.

The system will have live demonstrations at the 2015 SOFIC (Special Operations Forces Industry Conference) from May 19-21, 2015 at the Tampa Convention Center, Tampa, FL.

Thanks to Soldier Systems for highlighting this new system and to Matbock for choosing to work with Helical Robotics.
