EIVA’s complete ROV subsea inspection and control software solution brings a new user experience to VideoRay Defender ROVs

VideoRay’s remotely operated vehicle (ROV) Defender model is now powered by NaviSuite Mobula software. With this software, operators of Defender ROVs can benefit from a high degree of automation during planning, inspection and reporting – enabling autonomous operations.

’EIVA leads the world in survey software and VideoRay leads in ROV technology. Our partnership goes back years – we’ve always been very impressed with EIVA’s technology and innovation. By integrating our ROVs with NaviSuite Mobula software, the two technologies combine to provide the most effective solution for many survey and search missions.’ said Scott Bentley, CEO of VideoRay. 

Strengthening the VideoRay platform with software enabling automation

NaviSuite Mobula is a plug-and-play ROV software package with many advanced features for automatically and efficiently planning and performing inspections. The software for example provides automated navigation options that make use of the wide range of positioning sensors supported. Users can achieve even more autonomy by working with EIVA’s team to integrate automatic target registration with NaviSuite Deep Learning – thereby ensuring they don’t miss any details during inspections.

This high-end ROV software enables efficient piloting not only through automated navigation, but by helping operators gain situational awareness with a user-defined GUI that allows for simultaneous views of for example 2D, 3D and 4D model visualisations. NaviSuite Mobula also yields comprehensive data deliverables such as 3D visualisations or videos which the end-client can work with. These visualisations consist of highly accurate data thanks to its seamless software integration with hardware, as well as tools for real-time quality control

Affordable high-end subsea software for ROV users

‘EIVA’s vision with NaviSuite Mobula is to offer a cutting-edge ROV control software package that enables autonomous and automated operations through use of latest AI and robotics control technologies – all at an affordable price.’ said Jeppe Nielsen, CEO of EIVA.

NaviSuite Mobula is ready to support a wide variety of Defender ROV users, as it is available in different variants tailored to their needs, whether they want a solution for advanced ROV steering only or a streamlined solution supporting data acquisition and post-processing. Prices start at € 2.199 annually, with the option to purchase daily or monthly subscriptions. It is currently available ’off the shelf‘ as an extended option with Defender units – and existing VideoRay customers can easily replace their current software with NaviSuite Mobula.


VideoRay LLC is the global leader in inspection-class remotely operated vehicles (ROVs).

The philosophy behind the Mission Specialist approach is fitting each system to the exact sensors, tools, depth rating, and thrust needed for the job at hand, rather than retrofit accessories to a standard ROV.
