Versatile ROV

Mariner Underwater Electronics has launched its newest electric powered ROV, the Ippodamus. It has a depth rating of 800 metres which can be increased considerably for custom-made orders. It has been designed to be used for professional inspection and survey operations (observation, inspection, tunnel penetration etc). The Ippodamus can carry sensors as well as small manipulators, making the vehicle a very useful tool in the hands of experienced and professional operators. It has a high resolution colour camera with internal green laser and a video overlay system. (read more)

Thinking ROV

Engineers at Saab Seaeye, UK, have created a new development in ROV architecture, ‘The Intelligent Control of Nodes’ (ICON). The concept allows each device within the ROV to think for itself and talk remotely to operators and engineers through a gateway into the heart of the vehicle.     It gives users remote access to diagnostics, software upgrades and system inventory directly on board the ROV, via an enabled web interface, from anywhere in the world. ICON makes this possible by enabling each microprocessor (node) to operate as a sensor and report its unique status to the central control system.... (read more)

Hybrid ROV

Sperre, Norway, is developing a new ROV concept (H-ROV) that is expected to make remotely controlled underwater operations more efficient. The concept distinguishes from ordinary ROVs is that its thrusters can swivel round their own axes to provide optimal driving power in the direction of travel as well as compensate efficiently for current and cable drag. This offers an improvement in performance of anything from 30 to 50% compared to all conventional ROVs currently in production. High Efficiency  It means that the H-ROV will be particularly suitable for subsea dynamic positioning and autotraction operations. The buoyancy element with its thruster(s) will... (read more)

Marine ROV Simulator

Marine Simulation LLC has released ROVsim, a Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) simulator. The applied technologies have been originally developed for the video game industry and over two decades of industry experience, ROVsim is optimised to simulate a wide range of mission variables: from changing currents and visibility, tether and collision problems, to electronics and gear failures. Potential simulated missions include: harbor security, hull inspections, dam and bridge inspections, deep water drilling and cable work, law enforcement / evidence recovery, scientific data collection, tunnel / pipeline inspections, marine archeology and underwater rescue. ROVsim is designed to operate on low-cost personal computers... (read more)

Ultraheavy-duty ROV Sales

Schilling Robotics has sold two additional Schilling UHD ultraheavy-duty hydraulic ROVs to Geoconsult AS of Bergen, Norway, for delivery in March 2006. This order followed quickly upon Geoconsult’s initial September order for two UHD systems. Like the first systems ordered, these additional systems will feature 150shp and can operate at depths up to 4,000 meters. The systems will be delivered with features including Schilling’s new Digital Telemetry System, automatic control functions such as StationKeep, and Schilling’s new XE hydraulic TMS, with over 800 metres of tether. Geoconsuelt has also taken an option for four additional UHD systems. (read more)
