The TORTUGA ROV family is a multifunctional family of agile, remotely operated underwater vehicles (ROV) that, unlike conventional ROV's, is equipped with an internal energy storage system. This eliminates the need for an external power supply via cables, and the vehicles communicate with their control stations via a compact fiber optic cable.
The flexible design of the vehicles and the different interface options enable them to handle a wide range of tasks. Multiple sensors are available for underwater navigation and environmental sensing. The special feature of the TORTUGA ROV family is that the vehicles can be converted into an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) without any cable connections to the control station - provided that the required navigation sensors are installed.
Lights and cameras:
The collected data is displayed to the user on a control PC. The optical camera with high-power LEDs is used as standard for navigation and inspection. An optionally available sonar supports the user in obstacle avoidance. The energy storage can be easily replaced. Additional battery modules can be purchased to extend the operating time.
