Easy locating, tracking, and operating
The REVOLUTION NAV package provides pilots with a Google map showing their ROV’s position on-screen, allowing users to see where they are, leave a trail to show where they have been, and set points of interest where they want to return to. This is especially useful for applications in open, murky water or when there is a significant current.
The REVOLUTION NAV has advanced stabilization features to allow users to station hold against currents and pilot their vehicle precisely and accurately through varying water conditions. Auto altitude provides pilots with an accurate way to hold an exact distance from the bottom.
Deep Trekker’s Bridge software utilizes the various sensor data from IMUs, DVLs, USBLs, and more to help the ROV hold its position and travel to new locations more precisely by feeding off of each other’s data. The sensors are optimized and compensated for as you add more intelligence to the vehicle.
Revolutionary revolving camera head
The defining feature is the 260-degree revolving head at the front of the vehicle. In the center of this head is the ultra high definition camera that you see the view from on your controller, as well as powerful LED floodlights and a laser scaler.
Adjust the angle of your camera, lights, laser scaler, imaging sonar, and grabber to ensure optimal position for your application, such as sweeping an area with the imaging sonar in a search mission or looking above at the hull of a ship or to locate targets on the seafloor.
Stable six-thruster control
The ROV is propelled by six powerful thrusters, two of which are vertically mounted for precise vertical movements and depth holding, four of the thrusters are mounted horizontally and in a vectored configuration to allow for lateral movements. This configuration of thrusters is great for holding in heavier currents and for stable control when making fine adjustments while performing an inspection or survey.
The REVOLUTION is powered by two Lithium-Ion battery tubes on the bottom of the ROV. These batteries last for up to 8 hours and only take 3 hours to recharge. Included in the package is a spare set of batteries, these battery tubes or skis can be interchanged very quickly to keep your operations up and running. At the front of the skis are additional LED floodlights for even better illumination for your video.
BRIDGE seamless sensor integrations
Our ROVs are controlled by our BRIDGE software, which enables you to see and record data from many different sensors all from a handheld controller. When you add positional sensors such as the USBL, you can see your position on screen via a Google map and record your position as it changes over time along with the video and your other sensor data. Imaging sonars are also integrated directly on the handheld, allowing you to see and record sonar data side by side with your position and video footage.
The carbon fiber shell, anodized aluminum, and stainless steel body, and sapphire lens cover make the ROV a very rugged and durable machine.
The thrusters utilize an innovative design called magnetic coupling, the propeller assembly and drive motor are connected together using magnets, meaning that the thrusters are very durable, they do not wear down over time and they do not require ongoing maintenance as other thrusters often do require oiling, greasing or regular replacement.
Direct sonar integration
Above the camera head is an optional mount for a multibeam imaging sonar. Use the sonar to get a visual through murky water or over longer distances, monitor your sonar footage live, and record it alongside your video all on your handheld controller, no extra laptops or monitors required.
Simple field-change tools
Below the camera is a two function grabber, with interchangeable claws for sampling, measuring, recoveries or tool manipulation.
