Product overview

Aegir ROV

ROV Aegir 25-4D is a very compact observation class ROV system designed for demanding tasks within inshore operation as well as for costal and offshore operations where a small, powerful ROV is needed.

ROV Aegir 25-4D is based on XCS, ORI’s embedded control system designed for vehicles ranging from 10kg up to 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 25-4D is a highly stable platform for all kind of video and sonar work. Thanks to an innovative tilt platform lighting can be set to follow the camera, while being placed as far away from the lens as possible, to minimize back-scattering. The ROV can be delivered with ORI DUALity communication system, a new fault-tolerant approach to subsea telemetry, based on copper or fiber technology (or a combination). All electronics are located in the central intelligence unit with its easy access interface.

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.

The Ægir is developed and delivered by Ocean Robotics which is a partner in close cooperation with Kystdesign.
