The Most Maneuverable ROV on the Market today

Maneuverability

RJE Oceanbotics™ exclusive 8 thruster DVC gives full 360° maneuverability along 6 axes and advanced programming reduces the time needed to train an operator. Using a standard Xbox joystick controller, the operator “flies” the SRV-8 with near-instant familiarity.

Complex Made Simple

The ROV can perform complex maneuvers such as crabbing, climbing and pitching, and it can ascend, descend, move left, right, forward or backward with a single thumbstick gesture.

Software That’s Smartware

The ROV’s software smarts enables precision station-keeping and hold functions where the SRV-8 can be locked onto a specific heading, depth or pitch angle.

Ease of Use and One Person Portable

The SRV-8 can be in the water three minutes or less after arriving at the launch site. Deploying from almost any platform is simple, quick connectors link the ROV to tether to topside box and controller with 8.4” sunlight readable monitor – all in a matter of minutes.

 

Extend your mission with hot-swappable battery modules (available in Lithium or NiMH), no generator required.

Operate in any Underwater Environment Up to 305m Depth

Explore Longer. Dive Deeper.

In addition to getting up to 6+ hours of operation on a single charge (using Lithium batteries), the batteries provide enough power to get the SRV-8 on-station as rapidly as possible. The SRV-8 underwater drone is rated to depths as low as 305 meters (1,000 ft).

Tether Reel = 300 lb. + Pull Strength

The tether reel supports lengths up to 400m (1,312 ft) and the small diameter (4.5mm) of the tether itself reduces the effect of drag, weight and current on the ROV, making maneuvers and station-keeping easier.

With the uniquely designed strain relief connection and a pull strength rated over 300lbs, the tether can be used for launch and recovery of the SRV-8 from high platforms, or used to aid in the recovery of large heavy objects from the sea floor.

Dual Mode Camera (HD/Analog) + LED Lights

The SRV-8 is your “window in the water”. Two 1,500 lumen LED lights penetrate the depths with about a third of the brightness of full sunlight, illuminating 135° in front of the ROV, enabling the operator to find their target faster.

Additional lights can easily be added to the frame.

The onboard camera delivers dual feeds – a clear, real-time analog feed for the operator, and a high resolution digital signal suitable for viewing on-site or recording for later analysis.
