MSS WebIntro

The all new VideoRay Mission Specialist Series (MSS) Remotely Operated Vehicle Systems are a customizable and flexible platform that use a system of interchangeable, modular components, communicating through a single intelligent network. The topology of the Mission Specialist Series ROV systems provides an extremely flexible and customizable platform which can be easily adapted to target specific missions. The philosophy behind the Mission Specialist Series is fitting each system to the sensors, tools, depth rating, and thrust needed for the job at hand, rather than retrofit accessories to a standard ROV.

VideoRay MSS ROVs are configured from modular components. Available Mission Specialist modules include cameras with a wide range of resolutions, LED lighting, powerful thrusters capable of up to one horsepower operation, power systems ranging from 75 Volts to 1600 Volts as well as an on-board battery option, different manipulators, positioning and sensors for radiation, water quality, and metal thickness, imaging and multibeam sonars, and a purpose-built frame customized around the payload requirements of the operator’s chosen sensor and tooling package.

As with existing VideoRay Pro 4 systems, the Mission Specialist Series ROV systems will offer a wide range of the best underwater sensors and tools available on the market, including sonars, positioningDownload MSS Button systems, cavitation cleaners, manipulators, Doppler Velocity Logs (DVLs), autonomous control features, and water parameter sensors.

The topside control panel follows the lightweight, portable form factor of the Pro 4. MSS ROV Systems can be controlled over the Internet or through whichever USB controller option preferred by the ROV pilot.  

The depth rating for the Mission Specialist Series ROV systems is 2 kilometers (6,561 feet), a huge leap from the Pro 4's 300 m (1,000 ft) rating. In the very near future VideoRay plans to offer systems operable to full ocean depth – over 11,000 m (36,200 ft). All VideoRay Mission Specialist ROVs will use high quality, durable VideoRay plug-and-play copper or fiber optic tether, and can accommodate tether configurations up to 2 kilometers.

You tell us the job, we'll configure the perfect machine for it.

Before we can begin compiling your Mission Specialist Series ROV system, we need to understand exactly what it is that you need your vehicle to accomplish. During our discovery stage, you will work one on one with VideoRay to ensure we configure the perfect machine that achieves mission success time and again.

The discussion points during the discovery conversation will include understanding your operational environment, inspection frequency, your preferred ROV deployment method, and water depth, visibility, and water current profile. The more detail we have, the better we can dial in your ROV system.
