ROV for Science & Research

Fully customizable ROV technology for ocean science research and study

Modular Design, Unlimited Possibilities

VideoRay Mission Specialist Series vehicles are designed and built with flexibility in mind. The modular design enables easy maintenance and seamless integration with a variety of tools for a custom solution to your underwater challenges.

Common science and research applications:

  • Environmental monitoring
  • Hydrographic assessments
  • Marine life observation and monitoring
  • Habitat observation and monitoring
  • University research and monitoring
  • Underwater archaeology

ROV Systems Engineered for Science and Research

Many projects investigating underwater archaeology or marine life and their habitats involve long periods of observation—something ideally suited to VideoRay ROV capabilities. VideoRay ROVs are rugged tools that can be easily transported and deployed from small boats or through long holes in ice, enabling them to collect data in locations where no other technique would work. From swimming nose to nose with great white sharks to exploring under the sea ice of Antarctica, there’s no job too tough for a VideoRay ROV.

The capabilities of VideoRay ROVs include collecting water and soil samples with the manipulator arm, monitoring water parameters with a sonde, measuring and scaling objects with lasers, and determining metal thickness with gauges. Educational possibilities are also endless with remote Internet ROV piloting capabilities and interactive aquarium exhibits at museums around the world.

Mission Specialist Defender

The Defender ROV configuration is designed for greater control of the vehicle position and supporting heavier payloads. The addition of third-party software makes the Defender a popular configuration for harsh environments and stronger currents.

Mission Specialist Pro 5

The Pro 5 is designed to handle missions with size, space, weight and deployment speed constraints. It builds on the strengths of the Pro 4 but adds more thrust, longer tether lengths, higher-resolution video and the advantage of the Mission Specialist modular systems.
