VideoRay to Hold Live In-Water Demonstrations of Autonomous Military Underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) at NAVDEX 2013
 
VideoRay is the largest volume producer of Underwater ROVs (Remotely Operated Vehicles) in the world. With over 2,500 units delivered to a wide range of organizations for a wide range of missions, hundreds of VideoRays work every day throughout the world underwater keeping us free from terrorism, finding and retrieving objects, inspecting infrastructure both inland and offshore, and keeping divers safe from hazardous conditions.

VideoRay stand (B-034) is located in the US Pavilion at NAVDEX 2013 and will hold two (2) live in-water demonstrations daily at 1200 and 1500. VideoRay will demonstrate the Pro 4 MIL 300 ROV configuration which includes several features designed for military style operations including EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal), MCM (Mine Countermeasures), and general Port Security submerged inspections and surveys. The ROV will feature RI (reacquire Identify) CoPilot by SeeByte software, BlueView multibeam imaging sonar, and a Teledyne Doppler Velocity Log.

The ROV system uses sonar, navigation and vehicle control combined as a live control capable of going to a preset surface or subsurface target location using coordinates, run a preset search route, or go automatically to “point and click” locations in route. Pilots can autonomously follow pre-defined sorties or maintain a station in currents exceeding 1 knot and rough sea conditions.

Easily transported by small boat or RHIB to a secure GPS launch point, CoPilot RI can safely investigate underwater objects of interest in a Mine Danger Area (MDA). CoPilot RI self-propels and navigates using pre-planned data to commence target reacquisition and identification with high definition sonar and low light video. CoPilot RI allows personnel to maintain a safe standoff distance from hazardous items, keeping the diver out of the water and giving the operational commander additional capacity of limited diver resources.

CoPilot RI can perform a wide range of underwater search missions and relay information in real-time to provide the following immediate benefits:

• Autonomous Localization, Identification, and Reacquisition of mine-like threats

• Common Operator Interface Navy (COIN) compliant to provide mission planning, real time monitoring and post-processing software tool kit for rapid on-site analysis and fusion of sensor data, including side scan sonar, imaging sonar, and video from unmanned, towed, tethered systems and autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV) COIN is integrated with the US Navy’s Mine Warfare and Environmental Decision Aids Library (MEDAL)

• Pre-programmable to conduct lawnmower trajectories and provide high-resolution sensor data to assure a 100% coverage rate with point and click target marking and reacquisition

• Rapidly assess and mitigate underwater hazards without placing a diver in the water or unnecessarily tagging out a ship

• Removes divers from in water search to reduce personnel “Time-on-Target”

• Frees personnel for other tasks reducing manpower requirements

• Man-portable for rapid, easy deployment

• Low maintenance

• COTS system with 2,200+ ROVs sold and delivered world-wide

• Established logistics and maintenance support capabilitiese
