Remotely Operated Vehicles

Augmenting our core group of services, Ocean Surveys also performs underwater inspections using a Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV), the Deep Ocean Engineering Phantom HD2. The HD2 is a lightweight, yet extremely capable ROV system featuring laser rulers, sediment blasters and color video. It also accommodates various manipulators and sonars allowing collection of precise data to a depth of 1,000 feet (300 meters).

Underwater videography is collected using the Phantom's built-in wide-angle color camera. All video data is recorded and displayed in real time on a color monitor onboard the survey vessel.

Applications of Remotely Operated Vehicles include:

  • Inspection of underwater structures
  • Marine archaeological investigations
  • Benthic habitat documentation
