A Floater Disk is a 1.5-meter diameter disk that is 45 cm thick.[1] It normally floats on a cushion of air about 50 centimeters above ground, but can raise itself to heights of 20 meters with the use of its microthrusters. It can maintain this altitude for up to five minutes.

Floater disks have a single T-bar rising straight up from the middle. The pilot stands on the disk, his feet fitted into special built-in boots, and flies the vehicle while standing in front of the T-bar, his body strapped to it.

One of the greatest advantages of the floater disk is its almost instantaneous ability to turn 360 degrees, offering the pilot a complete field of fire. It is used by Star Lawmen when they have to patrol on foot or inside large, open buildings. Landfleet soldiers use them for guard duty and patrol.

Second-story thieves love floater disks. They are operated by pressure points activated by the pilot's feet. The floater disk can be equipped with powerlights, a loudspeaker, a micromissile launcher, and one pistol-sized weapon. The floater disk uses a Type 1 Parabattery.
