RDSV - Rapid Deployment Snow Vehicle

RDSV, is a high speed vehicle for use in any polar environment.

The 2 seater Rapid Deployment Snow Vehicle, would aptly serve polar exploration, rescue missions, medical emergencies or even sport applications, basically anything that requires high speeds through a polar environment.

The whole idea started with the traction system, something that could allow high speeds across Antarctica but could also climb up a mountain for an avalanche rescue operation. Then the whole vehicle was built around it.

RDSV features an adaptive traction system that allows for an effective displacement over both ice/hard snow or deep snow. Each wheel is made up by twelve individual units, each with two different paddles: a small one (for hard surfaces) and a big one (for deep snow).

Depending on the terrain, each unit rotates accordingly to expose the desired paddle.
