The Monobrake is a low-slung search and recovery utility vehicle capable of either travelling along monorail tunnels or, by using its front-mounted cahelium strengthened telescopic arm. The telescopic arm can be attached to an overhead monorail. A safety hood behind the driver/passenger seating serves as a barrier from the extreme temperatures of the jet engine.
Due to its low height, the Monobrake can drive in a monorail tunnel and have a train pass over it without incident.
