Maintenance Bots or MaintBots are remote piloted VR/Telepresence controlled repair vehicles manufactured by KarmaTech at the Neue Hanse Orbital Shipyard at Earth.
They are most often used to examine and repair the exterior surface of space stations, drydocked ships or assist in salvage or HazMat recovery.
They were capable of analyzing ships via longitudinal scans. One such bot did so on the USS Copernicus.
The SecurBot is a specialised variant of Bot used by Babylon 5's C'n'C to monitor space traffic outside the station.
Earth Alliance MaintBot was designed and built by Foundation Imaging Co-Founder Ron Thornton.
