 "Seabee RT4" Rover - amphibious vehicle for industrial /military use

The autopilot controlled Seabee RT4 amphibious vehicle was developed by our engineers in 2016 as part of a research assignment.

The combination of land and water mobility of our amphibious vehicle paired with sensitive, modular measuring instruments has prevailed in international comparison and is already used more than 150 times worldwide in industry and in the military under the toughest conditions.

The Seabee modules developed by our technicians, such as the gas analysis sensors, LIDAR (laser) and RADAR for 360 degree terrain detection, infrared cameras with radio transmission or the night vision function, allows the use at any time and season of they year as well as easy handling.

Our development department is constantly working on further development of our products and regularly provides free updates for our customers. Our handmade-in-Germany production of meanwhile more than 12000 bait- and function- boats has made the RT4 what it is today - the number one tool for demanding customers.

 New RT4 mapping trailer for 3D Maps.

Joined cooperation with our mapping specialist Dennis Groen. The trailer is used for mapping and features a Lowrance Elite 7Ti with a TotalScan sonar, which offers a 200ghz, CHIRP, DownScan and a Sidescan sonar. This combination collects the data for mapping and bottom hardness.

The trailer is easily pulled by the RT4 and has a great turning circle. The collected data is stored on a SD card, which can easily transferred to a computer. Do you have interest in the mapping trailer? Please contact us! Do you want a detailed depth map from your lake? Please contact us for more info or visit:


Autopilot Mapping.

Last week we have completed another special requested mapping project and handed it over to our client. The client was looking for an unmanned mapping boat with autopilot. However, normal mapping for pure depth map creation was not enough. In order to detect the soil in a HD resolution with mapping we use a Lowrance HDS 7 Gen 3 CHIRP in combination with a high resolution CHIRP sonar and as well a StructureScan® transducer in a trailer boat that is being pulled over the lake by the RT4 Bait boat.

The ground information from the integrated StructureScan® HD Sonar provides 180 degree photorealistic images of surrounding structures and are stored live in the HDS on a SD card. Then the data can be rendered to detailed hydrographic maps. A wireless camera in the trailer boat will also transmit the sonar image of a diversity system to a 10 inch monitor on land. 


 RT4 camera boats for film and television

We regularly produce special boats for professional over- and underwater film shots.

On the external, modular base frame, high-resolution video cameras are installed. They are controlled via the remote control which allows the amazing shots.

Especially because of the extremely stable water situation, international camera crews trust their up to € 20,000 expensive cams exclusively on our RT4 boats.
