  • Control Systems (built-in, containerised and mobile)
  • Power distribution systems for subsea RAS
  • Ship-to-Ship telemetry and Ship-to-Shore video streaming

Military Survey Equipment

  • Acoustic subsea positioning sytems
  • Rapid Environmental Assessment systems
  • Hydrographic survey systems
  • Long duration REA and positioning equipment

RAS Effectors

  • Standard ROV Tooling Suites
  • Standard Salvage and Exploitation Tooling
  • Bespoke Tooling tailored to the RAS mission set
  • Rapid development of bespoke tooling for specific, urgent, needs
