OceanRoboticsROV Aegir50

ROV Aegir 50 is the workhorse of OCEAN ROBOTICS compact OBS ROVs. Bringing the same ground-breaking features as its smaller brothers, just on a bigger scale, this machine is set to deliver in demanding operations.

Using the revolutionary DualStability™ system to ensure that the ROV platform is as steady as possible under all differing circumstances, this vehicle presents a perfect base for tomorrows high resolution sensors. Equipped with 6/7/8 brushless thrusters the ROV is easily maneuvered in all directions, including pitch and roll, to always enable the perfect angle for all sensors as well as giving ample thrust for high-speed excursions.

DualStability = A combination of a stable platform and 6DOF automatic control functions, working together to enhance the over-all stability.

ROV Aegir 50 is based on XCS, Ocean Robotics embedded control system designed for vehicles from 10 kg to several tons. This enables seamless scaling within ORI products where hardware and software can be used on a multitude of equipment. All hardware is interchangeable within the series, meaning that upgrades and addition of further equipment can be made without effort. The exclusive shape of the plastic frame gives the vehicle a small projected diameter, perfect for confined space exploration. The lower part of the frame is equipped to handle various tooling skid options, without adding to the vehicles exterior dimensions.

ROV Aegir 50 is a highly stable platform for all kind of video and sonar work. Thanks to the adaptable design of the ROV it can easily be equipped with the same electronics pack as used in our offshore ROVs, to enable a multitude of sensor and actuator attachments.

The ROV is controlled from the lightweight portable operators’ control. An intuitive menu system handles settings and sensor monitoring. A touch-screen controller is available as an option, installed on customer specified hardware or proprietary equipment.
