Type:  Product
IPR Status:  Copyright
Secured In:  India
Application/uses: 

Technology of ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) with Manipulator capable of underwater inspection (camera based) & minor intervention at limited turbid water is developed. The indigenously developed 6-thruster configuration ROV interfaced with a 2-DOF underwater manipulator is capable of working at shallow water depth (max. 20 m) with a speed of 1-2 knots.
