Inuktun Sighting #58: Take a Peek at the Picotrac

Inuktun Sighting #58: Take a Peek at the Picotrac

Last October, Inuktun President and CEO Colin Dobell presented a technical paper at the ASNT Annual Conference that described a proposed marsupial robotic crawler system for camera and sensor deployment in nuclear waste double-shell tank refractory air slots. During this presentation, the Picotrac™ was introduced – our smallest crawler track yet! Based on the larger Microtrac™ and Minitrac™ transporters, the Picotrac™ is a fully sealed, modular, independently operated track that is 5 inches long with a cross section of less than 1.5 inches square. We’ve moved past the prototype phase and are excited to present the first picture of the production Picotrac™.
