THE PERFECT CHOICE

ROV Odysseus is an easily transportable, extremely capable and highly affordable deep sea system that integrates into ships of opportunity and is available on a global basis. Whether supporting the installation and maintenance of ocean observation systems, surveying and performing light work tasks for industry, conducting video transects and/or biological and geological sampling, film operations, search and recovery, or exploration, Odysseus is the perfect choice.

Sample Trays, Tool Skids, and Support for Ocean Observing Systems

Odysseus is equipped with a flexible tool/science skid. The basic science skid comes with a hydraulically controlled sliding tray. The tool/science skid can also be equipped with spare hydraulic functions, spare sensor bulkheads, a spare fiber-optic cable and available power (AC or DC) to meet the needs of most sampling equipment, additional cameras, customized and standard hydraulic tools, etc. Custom sample trays or tools (cable reels, etc.) are designed to mate to the ROV simply and efficiently.

The Odysseus science skid can be removed and the ROV can mate with sub-sea equipment packages to support ocean observing networks or other sub-sea installations.  Utilizing the through frame lift capacity and two hydraulic load release mechanisms Odysseus can take on the toughest jobs quickly and efficiently.

Odysseus Mission Interface

Odysseus utilizes a control system that provides precise vehicle control.  The autopilot system creates an intuitive, interactive interface allowing the pilot and co-pilot to focus on precise mission details and objectives. Auto hover, auto altitude, auto heading, auto depth and waypoint navigation are all features of the Odysseus control system.
