Teledyne Marine Visit Website

Teledyne Marine is a group of cutting-edge, industry-leading developers of autonomous and unmanned marine vehicles for demanding subsea and shallow-water environments. Our ROVs (Remotely Operated Vehicles), AUVs (Autonomous Unmanned Vehicles) and USVs (Unmanned Surface Vehicles) provide state-of-the-art solutions for challenging applications such as oceanography, defense and security, and oil and gas inspection and surveying.

Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs)

SeaBotix ROVs for inspections, search and recovery

Teledyne Marine Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs)Teledyne SeaBotix’ observation- and inspection-class ROVs are compact and lightweight with the power to navigate strong currents. The highly flexible systems feature modular designs that enable all major components, such as thrusters, lights, electronics bottle, and flotation, to be quickly and easily removed or replaced. A wide variety of sensors, cameras and payloads can be fielded on the vehicles, providing multi-mission functionality.

Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs)

Gavia AUV for surveys, inspections and research

Gavia – modular AUV for research, commercial and defense applications

Gavia Modular AUV
The Gavia is a modular, low-logistics AUV with field-swappable plug-and-play modules rated to 500 or 1000m. The standard base configuration includes nose, battery, control and propulsion modules, with additional capabilities including sonar, cameras, inertial navigation and environmental sensors.

This flexible, easily reconfigurable solution, offering true multi-mission capability, can operate from a wide variety of vessels of opportunity. It is an ideal and cost-effective platform for commercial surveying, scientific and environmental research, mine countermeasures, search and rescue and more.

SeaRaptor – deepwater AUV with flexible sensor integration

The SeaRaptor is a survey-grade deep water AUV featuring modular payload ports for field-swappable sensors. The vehicle can also be customised to fit additional instruments such as side scan sonars, echo sounders, sub-bottom profilers and cameras. Redundant emergency systems provide extra recovery options both below the water and on the surface.

SeaRaptor AUV
Rated to 3000 or 6000m, the SeaRaptor can undertake a wide range of missions, including oceanography, marine archaeology, search and recovery, salvage and construction support.
