A New Breed of Coastal Security

RB-S meets all Port Security Grant requirements and is ideally-suited for port and waterway enforcement, search and rescue operations, drug and coastal interdiction, environmental and other law enforcement missions.

The boat is road transportable for service between missions, and may also be transported via C130 aboard a specialized trailer. RBS also includes a full complement of communications and navigation gear, as well as shock-mitigating seats for enhanced crew comfort. The crew is further protected from foes - and the elements - by a fully-enclosed cabin enhanced with ballistic materials. The vessel’s side and rear windows drop down to improve crew communication and ventilation.

RB-S is also weapons-ready, with multiple weapons racks and an integrated weapons-ready mounting system at the bow. The forward-mounted gunner’s platform provides 180-degree firing capability while a pass-through hatch leads to the cabin for easy access in any conditions.
