Move people and equipment into and out of difficult amphibious zones that are otherwise inaccessible.
ARKTOS Craft are proven to have the highest level of all-round amphibious mobility in the world - particularly while crossing the transition between ice and water. Due to their unique design ARKTOS Craft have an unsurpassed ability to maneuver through ice-rubble fields, significant side slopes, steep grades, muskeg, quicksand and any other water transition zones. The ARKTOS Craft consists of a permanently linked pair of fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) hulls. Each hull is independently powered by a diesel engine linked through hydraulic motors, industrial transmissions, differentials, axles and torque multipliers to the track system. On land motive power is provided by the tracks, while in water propulsion jets supply the required thrust. The existing 15-meter United States Coast Guard approved ARKTOS Evacuation Craft can carry 52-passengers or 5,000 kilograms of cargo through the most severe terrain and up to 10,000 kilograms of cargo in open water, across relatively level ground and across moderate transitions between water and land. Larger ARKTOS Craft with greater load carrying capacity and exceptional amphibious towing have been considered for several major projects. Smaller, faster ARKTOS Craft have also been conceived for patrol and rescue missions. The ARKTOS Craft team specializes in solving the most challenging amphibious mobility situations.
