What is an R.O.V?

    A Remotely Operated Vehicle is a system that combines electrical, mechanical, and optical components to perform tasks in areas that are distant or hostile. They can be considered an extension of industrial robots.

    An underwater ROV can be used to perform a variety of tasks, including
  • biological specimen gathering and observation
  • communications cable laying/repair
  • mine detection
  • pipeline laying/repair
  • search and recovery
  • survey/mapping for oceanographic information
  • video inspection of boat/ship hulls
  • homeland/harbor security
  • Off-shore power station inspection and maintenance
  • others
