SeaView Systems assembled and customized a BlueROV2 outfitted with sonar and a manipulating arm for the Crescent Township Fire Department to aid in their underwater search and recovery operations. Employing an ROV has many advantages over the traditional use of divers, including longer run-time, no limitations due to oxygen supply or temperature, and depth of search. ‘It’s going to be like a guardian angel along the rivers to help a lot more than just us here at the department and town,’ said Jon Affeltranger, who raised and donated the money for the ROV to the Crescent Township FD.
