Two PB 100 units converted to work in extreme conditions, and at the same time detecting cracks in the icy surface of Antarctica and transport scientific personnel in their research and studies.
The Chilean Army entrusted Telemet with two PB100 units with the particularity of being prepared for the difficult task of transporting its personnel in one of the most difficult terrains on earth, Antarctica.
The two PB100, brought from the factory in mid-October 2021, were taken to the Chilean Army base in Punta Arenas, where they were assembled and tested. One of the machines was acquired with an additional cabin for 5 people, which has all the comforts for an activity of this type.
The second PB100 unit was retrofitted with a crane on the rear platform.
Based on an exclusive Telemet design, a front tilting mechanism was built that allows the mounting of a sonar to be mounted on the blades of both units, which allows the detection of cracks in the frozen ground of Antarctica, this device allows a safe travel of personnel and material in the trips that the Army will make.
