Science & Research

Scientists working under water in areas from marine biology to archaeology have in common the need of stable ROV platforms for video and still image documentation.  Depending on the specific tasks of each project a multitude of different sensors and tools are used with the ROV systems. Sometimes scientists work from well-equipped research vessels and sometimes the work takes place in remote areas from small boats.

Ocean Robotics ROVs for Science & Research are based on the specifications from multiple research groups. They are powerful agile vehicles with high stability and manoeuvrability set to collect images, data or samples in tough conditions. With the open framework architecture and a generous payload capacity it is easy to attach additional equipment. Our systems can be adapted for fixed installations or delivered as compact portable solutions packed in shockproof cases. Based on our modular ROV concept we offer scientists world wide solutions adapted to their specific needs.

OceanRobotics Camera-HD 190

CAMERA HDi (HD internal)

The HDi camera enables HD quality recordings for users not requiring real-time HD monitoring. Thanks to internal HD recording and simultaneous composite SD output to the user with full control, the HDi lets you deliver broadcast video quality without the investments needed for realtime cameras (ie. HD-SDI or component over optic fiber).

Dimensions: Ø105, L190mm (excl. connector), weight 0g (in water)

Zoom: 10x optical, Focus: Auto/man, 10mm to infinity
