Valeport Sensors for Oceaneering’s Freedom ROV/AUV
Oceaneering’s next generation hybrid ROV, Freedom, will be fitted with Valeport Bathypack, Altimeter and Hyperion Fluorometer sensors.
Valeport worked with Oceaneering’s engineering team to meet challenges in communication and connector requirements.
Valeport sensors in the Midas Bathypack were ethernet enabled to offer precision sound velocity, conductivity, temperature, depth and altimeter data, which is used to enhance the operational capability of the Freedom resident vehicle.
The subsea vehicle is also equipped with Valeport’s environmental monitoring sensor, the Hyperion Fluorometer, for the measurement of Chlorophyll A.
Marketing manager, Guy Frankland, said: “The precision accuracy of the data delivered by the Valeport sensor technology is perfectly matched with Oceaneering’s visionary Freedom subsea resident vehicle. We are continually developing our sensors to best meet our customer needs and an OEM application such as Freedom enables us to create a customised instrument to meet a refined specification.”
