Navajo ROV

Brief Description

The Navajo ROV is a truly versatile professional ROV system suitable for inshore and offshore use. Its size and weight allow easy transportation and deployment, yet it is large enough to provide a stable platform for high quality video and sonar surveys.

The ROV is also capable of carrying neutrally buoyant work skids and multifunction manipulators.

The system comprises of four main components, the Surface Control Unit (SCU), the Hand Controller, the Umbilical or Tether and the Navajo Vehicle (ROV).

1. The Surface Control Unit (SCU) is 5U high, 19 “rack module and incorporates the main power and the vehicle control systems. This compact unit contains power conditioning and a Line Insulation Monitoring (LIM) electrical safety system, vehicle telemetry, Light dimmers, automatic depth & handling control (altitude optional) and video overlay system. Work skid functions are also controlled from the SCU. Two main cables connect to the SCU, the main power supply and ROV umbilical. Power requirements are 80 to 264 VAC, 47 to 440 Hz, 3.0 to 4.8 kW. A Portable 7U high, 19 “rack flight case is available which incorporates the SCU and a fold-away flat panel monitor.

2. The Hand Controller is used for vehicle flying and is connected to SCU by an interconnect cable. Standard hand controller is Sony PS2 joystick as most operators will be familiar with this format. An optional ‘ professional’ hand controller can also be supplied. Both options are interchangeable.

3. The 14 mm diameter umbilical is connected between the SCU and the ROV where it is terminated using a signal metal shell electrical connector.

4. The NAVAJO vehicle (ROV) consists of three main assemblies, these being the Propulsion Module, Imaging Module and Frame
