SeaView Systems’ long distance remotely operated vehicle (LDROV) can fit through a 20 inch manhole and travel a distance of up to 10,000 feet. It is a purpose built ROV fitted with a fiber optic telemetry system and custom power handling equipment. It is driven by four 300W brushless DC thrusters (vector configuration) giving a total forward thrust of 72lb. The ROV is built into a plastic frame fitted with freewheeling wheels on the top surface to provide smooth running along the crown of pipelines and tunnels.
