H300V, a compact & lightweight ROV tailored for SAR operations

The ECA GROUP, with its H300V ROV, offers an excellent solution for this kind of demanding application. Powerful while compact and able to operate in rough sea condition, this Remotely Operated Vehicle is also highly equipped in sonar and viewing systems.

This lightweight ROV - less than 100 kg in basic configuration - incorporates 4 vectored horizontal thrusters which secure to the ROV both increased power and excellent manoeuvrability and stability in all horizontal directions. This ROV can operate up to 300m depth.

Besides, its open frame design permits an easy incorporation of additional sensors, manipulator arms or actuators, either inside the ROV or mounted on underneath attached skids.

Whatever the depth, the acoustic positioning system, as well as sonars and low light B/W camera installed on the ROV will help identifying objects underwater. When close-by, the zoom color TV camera and strong LED lights mounted on the P/T unit can complete the identification tasks. If pertinent the ROV can be equipped with a still camera to permit real time transmission of very high definition photos.
