As weapons technology constantly advances, force protection tools and techniques must evolve at a rapid pace to keep humans out of harm's way. Militaries have relied on robotic aids for the last decade, using bomb disposal robots on the ground, unmanned drones in the air, and remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) underwater. When it comes to protection from underwater threats, VideoRay is on the front line.

VideoRay dominates the underwater homeland security space due to its unique combination of extreme portability and deployability, ability to work in rapid currents and to crawl along ship hulls, and durable, maintainable design. Our ROVs replace (or augment) the use of divers for underwater inspection tasks in hazardous environments such as minefields. Military, government, and force protection personnel have found VideoRays useful for a variety of underwater inspection tasks such as explosive ordnance disposal (EOD), meteorology, port security, mine countermeasures (MCM), and maritime ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance). 

VideoRay ROVs can already be found in navies, coast guards, and port authorities around the globe, including the U.S. Coast Guard and U.S. Navy, police departments from New York to San Francisco, the Royal Netherlands Navy, the Norwegian Navy, and the Saudi Border Guard. These agencies have often seen immediate returns on their investments, completing successful missions within a few weeks of receiving their VideoRay ROV system.

Ongoing research by the U.S. Department of Defense Counter Terrorism Technology Support Office, Dutch and Australian Navies, NATO, and other governments and universities ensures that the latest advances in search, identification, and render safe technologies will be based on VideoRay.
