Content Details: 

ROV-500 is embedded with advanced power, propulsion, navigation, and control systems. The propulsion system comprises thrusters for generating motion in different directions to control surge, sway, heave, pitch and yaw, while preventing the vehicle from rolling. A thin optoelectro-mechanical umbilical cable interface helps to send power and signal resulting online transmission of underwater video and images and useful information pertaining to temperature over depth. The vehicle is operated with joystick and can be programmed to carry out an underwater mission without human assistance.

Level/Scale of Development:  Prototype developed and conducted successful sea trial at a depth of 500 m
