Optimized mechanical design
The vLBV950 has undergone extensive mechanical design to optimize stability, capability, flexibility and serviceability. No other small ROV has had such attention to every detail as the vLBV950. Our in house ex-America’s Cup physicist has carefully examined pressure zones, moment arms, center of gravity, meta center and more to produce an exceptional small ROV.
Flexible stable platform
Out of the box the vLBV950 is a stable platform. To capitalize on the stability the vLBV950 is able to accept a wide range of cameras, sensors, tools and more. Such as four video channels including HD, 4 high speed data channels and three high speed Ethernet channels.
Ultra low drag, strong tether
The vLBV950 uses the low drag tether that Teledyne SeaBotix has used in all it’s ROV system. At 9.05 mm (0.35 in) nominal diameter and 100 kg (220 pd f) working load the tether has minimal impact on the performance. The tether can be attached to the rear or top of the vLBV950 depending on conditions.
Intuitive control system
Teledyne SeaBotix MiniROV controls have been regarded as the most intuitive of all small ROVs. The vLBV950 is no different with the user friendly operator control unit and integrated control console.
