Inspection & Survey

Much of the world's crucial public infrastructure involves water. Potable water tanks, reservoirs, locks, dams, bridges, and culverts are aging everywhere, and scarce funding must be allocated carefully and efficiently to the most critical problems. In order to do this, regular detailed inspections are needed. 

Until the arrival of underwater robotics solutions such as our ROV, these inspections were often either done with expensive, dangerous solutions involving divers, or they weren't done at all. In many cases a ROV inspection can be done rapidly, safely, and very cost-effectively. The results - video and still images of specific problem areas - can be transmitted and presented to experts who can decide whether the asset is okay for now, whether further study is needed, or whether immediate action is necessary to protect the 
public.


Using the Deepvision ROV eliminates potential safety risks, and eliminates exposing divers to unsafe conditions. The agile and simple-to-pilot submersible can be equipped with up to 450 meters (1,500 ft) of tether. It captures high quality video and still images directly to the ROV computer's hard drive - easy to access, edit, and deliver in popular video and image formats.
