This #InuktunInTheWild sighting is from the Oil Gas and Technology Centre’s (OGTC) Open Doors Day event. The OnSpec Custom Solution known as the Inuktun Versatrax 450™ foreign object search and retrieval (FOSAR) vehicle was on display, and it was well received by event visitors.

Having the opportunity to drive this robust crawler and use the manipulator arm to pick up objects, spectators expressed interest in the types of environments and typical applications for this flexible crawler system.


Seeing and operation the vehicle showed the participants how the Versatrax™ 450 robotic crawler can perform remote visual inspection and handling in places that are inaccessible or too hazardous for direct human intervention. The compact system can be deployed in a matter of minutes allowing operators to inspect, capture and safely remove dangerous materials from any site faster than other conventional means.

Similarly, our Inuktun Versatrax™ 150 is no stranger to danger. It has been successfully deployed by the military and defense industry for applications like homeland security, intelligence reconnaissance, border and transportation security, counter terrorism, critical infrastructure protection and emergency response. Trust our robotic crawlers to assess and respond, 24/7/360°.
