The Terrapin is a small, versatile remote controlled excavator-based system designed to perform area preparation and clearance tasks in anti-personnel (AP) contaminated minefields. The Terrapins small platform based system makes it fuel efficient as well as light weight. The six ton Terrapin features several attachments which give it the capability to clear vegetation and obstacles so demining teams can access the mine suspect areas, and mechanically remove and neutralize mines and unexploded ordnance (UXO). Distribution Statement A: Approved for public release.
