Remotely Operated Vehicles

Remotely Operated Vehicles are becoming more useful, more reliable and more capable. However, one size doesn’t fit all so that’s why our subsea technologies have been designed to be compatible with vehicles of all sizes and capabilities; from micro to work class.

Solutions from Micro to Work class ROVs


Achievable slant range system accuracy

Any application – shallow or deep

Over the last couple of decades, Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) have become the go-to tool for oil and gas construction and maintenance tasks. Suited to work in thousands of metres of water, or just a few, within the energy sector they are routinely used to lift, lower, push, inspect, survey, watch, stab and turn those valves. In other industries, ROVs have also become a common tool, from science to fisheries to mine-detection missions and wreck hunting, there is an ROV to fit the bill.

Save time, save money

Traditionally, pilots only had at their disposal a camera, a joystick and thousands of hours of training. High-end navigation sensors were reserved for survey jobs and deployed opportunistically. Today however, savvy operators understand that positioning and navigation are critical for efficient operations. Any vessel time lost while finding your way with an ROV can compromise the value of the operation and ultimately your bottom line. Navigation and positioning are also at the heart of modern ROV dynamic positioning systems, which can assist ROV pilots by enabling them to precisely manoeuvre the ROV to a known location at the click of a button. To achieve effective positioning and navigation from seabed to surface, the ROV must be able to use all the sensors at its disposal from Doppler Velocity Logs for optimal operation close to the seabed, to aided INS in order to operate close to the surf zone.

Navigation and positioning for your ROV

We’re no strangers to what you need to position and navigate your ROV, no matter the size or application. Our world-class technology is designed with performance in mind, from our Micro-Ranger 2 USBL, used to track in shallow water, to our ultra-high performance SPRINT-Nav providing unprecedented navigation. We can add value to your ROV operations, no matter of budget or depth. Speak to one of our experts, you might be surprised at how we can take your operations to the next level.
