Technology Profile

Deep Ocean Engineering has recently introduced an advanced inspection-class ROV's. The all-new Vector

Series ROV's are designed to be reliable, powerful vehicles that can carry the most advanced sonars, cameras and specialized instruments, all the while maximizing stability and control of the vehicle. By adopting digital telemetry, the

Graphical User Interface provides a great more information to the ROV operator than had heretofore been available.

This additional information not only includes details on the data being collected at the ROV but also on-condition mon- itoring of the ROV and its systems. Finally, the all-new brushless thrusters installed on all Vector Series ROV's are designed to be the most powerful and reliable available on any inspection-class ROV.
