The newly conceived Sea Owl XTi, re-launched by Saab Seaeye, was originally the first 360° ROV to work in any orientation – even upside down.

That earlier Sea Owl concept, successfully introduced by Saab in the 1980s, has been completely re-engineered.

The new Sea Owl XTi includes the iCON intelligent control architecture, has double the payload, is powered by seven thrusters, and is depth rated to 2000 meters from the earlier 500.
