Introducing SRV-8X

More Powerful Thrusters + Larger Payload
Rugged Design & Intuitive Software

The SRV-8X Boasts Extensive Capabilities

Though the SRV-8X can be used for all industry applications, its powerful new feature set excels specifically for the harsh requirements encountered by First Responders, Search & Rescue, Military l Defense, Inland Infrastructure, Aquaculture, Science and Reseach, Offshore Energy and Extreme Recreational users.

The SRV-8X was developed to push the limits required for Offshore deployment where the payload limitations, multiples of required accessories along with challenging depth and currents demand a more powerful and flexible solution.

  • Designed to fill in the gaps and reduce pain points for the customer for professionals in Offshore, Military, Science.

  • The optional surface power supply eases the pain on oil rigs for offshore or other harsh environments.

  • Fiber Optic tether allows for operation of distances greater than 400m (our copper tether decreases in bandwidth as the length increases – after 400m you see significant lag)

  • Larger thrusters and More powerful design of the SRV-8X increases payload limitations and ability to work in stronger currents at deeper depths.

  • More accessory ports allow users to add additional accessories to complete wider variety of jobs (Still field upgradeable/plug & play solutions) – this is great for Science and Research teams that work in the Ocean (ie NOAA and marine biologists)

  • Added conveniences include on/off switch and underwater tracking beacon

  • This is for large scale work – I wouldn’t recommend this to a small police dive team or a wealthy hobbyist. It is not one-person portable, but set up time is still less than 3 minutes.

  • Overall, the SRV-8X is 2x larger and more powerful with extra accessory ports, surface power supply options, and fiber optic tether options.

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

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.
