SeaLion-2 ROV

Product From JW FISHERS

Not long ago ROVs were expensive pieces of equipment primarily used by the oil industry, top research institutions, and a select group within the military. Today the cost of  ROVs has come down to a point where they are in widespread use by a diverse group of people.  These remote operated vehicles are being employed in a broad spectrum of applications.  Commercial diving companies use them for inspection and repair of underwater structures, thereby minimizing dive time and improving safety. Law enforcement agencies use them to look for a weapon thrown in a waterway, hunt for a sunken vessel, or search for a submerged vehicle. Coast Guard and military units use them to inspect the hulls of ships for drugs and contraband, to search for mines, and to secure areas by checking underwater structures for explosive devices. Universities use them to study benthic habitats and marine species. Government fisheries services use them to monitor fish and shellfish populations.  Dive rescue groups use them to search for a lost swimmer, find a missing boater, or to locate a snowmobiler that has gone through the ice. Aquaculture farms use them to check the health of fish stocks and the condition of the cages.  Even recreational fishermen and divers are using ROVs, just to see what’s on the bottom.
