SurfROVer is the latest in a line of inventive, special purpose ROVs designed and built by SeaView Systems. A battery-operated crawler with a low-profile design and wide footprint that creates an extremely stable vehicle, SurfROVer targets the transitional zone between shore and deep water environments that often cannot be addressed by other vehicles. The challenges of the transition zone are particularly important in active surf conditions where key aspects of SurfROVer’s design make it capable of operating in otherwise impassable conditions. SurfROVer’s innovative battery powered propulsion system makes it ideal for specialized applications such as route surveys and unexploded ordinance (UXO) surveys and for deployment of a cable/pipeline tracker as well as applications in otherwise impassible surf such as active surf bathymetry surveys.
