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)

First Parametric ROV Echosounder

Adaptation has begun of the Innomar Technologie SES-2000 parametric echosounder for use on ROVs. The advanced sounder functions with a pencil-thin acoustic beam that is a highly effective tool in penetrating mud and sediment to provide high resolution sub-bottom profiles. Aquadyne is project-managing the work of Innomar and DeepOcean in developing the first parametric echosounder capable of deployment on an ROV down to 2,000 metres. The development is being initiated as part of a contract that DeepOcean holds with Statoil and, as project manager, Aquadyne responsibilities also include raising finance for the work. Completion of the project is scheduled for... (read more)
