Sensotronic Brake Control, is an electrohydraulic braking system designed
to reduce the vessel's stopping distance by optimising the brake force
distribution between the paddles. Sensor-controlled intermittent drying
of the paddles makes for a faster braking response in the wet, ensuring
that the vessel always comes to a standstill before hitting the beach.
In the event of a sinking or roll-over, the vessel's occupants are protected
by the high-buoyancy frame of the hull. The Navy has practiced controlled
sinking manoevers in various conditions and all Sailors are familiar
with the Navy's emergency sinking drill.
Space onboard is scarce. Designed as an 18-seater, the vessel's interior
dimensions are exceptionally sparse.
