SEAMOR Chinook

inspection-class ROVThe Chinook is an industrial-grade inspection-class ROV with a compact profile that allows it to operate in highly confined spaces. Featuring a forward-facing high-resolution video camera for capturing broadcast-quality footage, as well as an auxiliary camera, the functionality of the versatile robotic vehicle can be extended even further with the addition of optional manipulators, tool skids, extra thrusters, sonars, USBL systems and more.

The platform’s design includes multiple handles and frame cross members that allow it to be carried and deployed by two people with ease. The Chinook package includes an intuitive and ergonomic controller with a built-in LCD screen.

Industrial Inspection
Our ROVs are ideal for undertaking a wide range of critical inspection tasks, including pipelines, storage vessels, and subsea structures.

Port Security
Critical security tasks such as hull scans and unidentified object inspection can be carried out by ROVs, reducing the risks faced by divers and other personnel.

Marine Research
ROVs are an essential tool for scientists and researchers looking to gain a greater understanding of coral reefs, ocean currents, and underwater environments.

Search & Recovery
Law enforcement and first responders deploy ROVs in challenging waters to locate forensic evidence, sunken vehicles and vessels, and missing persons, working at depths and under visibility conditions that would be impossible using manual methods.

Nuclear Power
Nuclear power facilities require regular inspection to meet demanding safety regulations. ROVs are able to operate where human divers cannot, particularly due to radiation, thus helping to speed up inspection and reduce downtime.
Marine aquaculture ROV
ROVs help commercial fisheries and aquaculture ventures undertake a wide range of tasks in order to lower operating costs and boost profitability, including water sampling, net inspections, disease detection, and repairs.
