VideoRay Mission Specialist remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) are customizable and flexible platforms that use a system of interchangeable, modular components. The topology of these ROVs provides a platform which can be easily adapted to target specific missions. The philosophy behind Mission Specialist technology 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.
The modularity of VideoRay’s Mission Specialist technology allows for easy maintenance, fast repairs, simple upgrades, and seamless integration across configurations. Each configuration consists of several modules developed by either VideoRay or a variety of underwater tool and sensor companies. Modules include cameras with a range of resolutions, LED lighting, efficient yet powerful thrusters, power systems ranging from 75 Volts to 1600 Volts, communications modules using either fiber or copper, manipulators, positioning and sensors for radiation, water quality, and metal thickness, imaging and multibeam sonars. Since integration with third party modules is a primary goal, the wide range of power, communication, and mounting options accommodate almost every compact tool or sensor.
Open architecture software from Greensea Systems comes standard with Mission Specialist vehicles. Greensea’s software integrates control, navigation, sensors, diagnostics, and data management into a single user interface, and provides the marine industry’s most advanced navigation, control, and autonomy. Similar to the Mission Specialist vehicles, Greensea’s software is modular, meaning that it can easily adjust to integrate new configurations. Together, these technologies provide a powerful, comprehensive, modular robotic system that is ready to take on challenging tasks.
