Ocean Innovations Announce Supply of ROV to Scripps

Ocean Innovations is pleased to announce that it has supplied a mini work class ROV to Scripps Institution of Oceanography. The H2000 ROV, manufactured by DOER Marine, is a very capable system with powerful hydraulic thrusters and high bandwidth fiber optic cable. The vehicle was equipped with a five function DOER SeaMantis manipulator, powerful LED lights, three video cameras, and a multi-beam sonar.

Scripps intends to use the vehicle on its fleet of ocean going vessels for retrieving lost instruments, collecting samples, and other scientific tasks. With its 2000 meter depth rating, 160 lb payload capacity and 327 lbs of forward thrust, the H2000 will be up to the job. A key feature for Scripps’ is the vehicle’s instrument manifold that is pre-wired for RS-232, RS-485, and ethernet thus making it easy to integrate additional sensors.
