SEAMOR ROVs have been designed with an engineering philosophy of modularity. This allows customers to select from a wide range of accessories and upgrades that can be added on to any of SEAMOR’s three flagship vehicles:
- the Steelhead (a compact vehicle able to dive to 300 meters);
- the Chinook (a powerful mid-weight vehicle with HD capability, able to dive to 600 meters;
- the Mako (a large, open-bay ROV with heavy payload).
SEAMOR also offers a wide range of in-house designed and built accessories such as auxiliary cameras, lights, handheld control pendant, and grippers. A cutting-edge 7-funtion hydraulic arm is also being developed for complex manipulation/sample retrieval.
The Chinook is an industrial grade inspection ROV with a wide range of capabilities. Explore depths up to 300 m (1,000′) with the standard vehicle or 600 m (2,000′) with the deep water version.
A true workhorse, the Chinook offers a stable platform yet remains compact. With its small profile, the Chinook can operate in tight places and is easily stowed when not in use. Multiple handles and frame cross members allow two people to handle this ROV with ease.
For greater versatility, customize your Chinook by adding accessories such as extra thrusters, navigational searching aids, manipulators, tool skids and more.
The Mako is SEAMOR Marine’s newest ROV. With a large open frame design and versatile mounting options, this vehicle can carry a variety of accessories and has the power capacity to run them all at once.
The Mako’s payload (14 kg standard, upgradable to 22.5 kg) allows users to install heavy instrumentation, including multi-beam imaging sonars. Users can easily mount and position accessories without any special tools. The ample space in the accessory bay also improves flow-through, which ensures maximum thruster efficiency, making it easy to fly the Mako no matter the payload.
The Mako comes standard with eight (8) SEAMOR- designed thrusters; four (4) of these are vertical thrusters that provide a more stable flight. The second pair of vertical thrusters offers a failsafe compared to the competition who only offers a single pair. We have arranged the Mako’s four (4) horizontal thrusters to maximize forward thrust.
The Steelhead inspection-class ROV is a portable, lightweight and stable underwater system that is easily operated through intuitive flight controls. Its small profile allows this vehicle to inspect confined spaces and be easily stowed.
The compact Steelhead is easily deployed and recovered from small vessels and docks – no need for hoists or cranes. A standard definition NTSC/PAL camera, optimized for lowlight conditions provides the ROV operator with quality video. “Out of the box” features include an integrated controller and LCD monitor module with auto depth, auto heading, a digital video recorder and much more.
