Gathering meteorology and oceanography data plays a vital role in multiple homeland security and homeland defense applications such as Mine Countermeasures (MCM), maritime Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR), Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA), Environmental Defense (ED), Anti-Terrorism / Force Protection (AT/FP), and Port Security (PS). There is no better tool available for one man, rapid submerged data gathering than the VideoRay Pro 4 ROV system.
Over the last decade, VideoRay operators have supported hurricane damage assessments, bottom mapping all over the world, acoustic imaging all over the world, oil industry support including spill operations, assisted response and restoration of marine life, as well as performed water quality evaluations globally.
The VideoRay ROV has also been proven as an effective tool in the majority of the NMOC's (Naval Meteorology and Oceanography Command) primary focuses which include providing critical environmental knowledge to the warfighting disciplines of Anti-Submarine Warfare; Naval Special Warfare; Mine Warfare; Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance; and Fleet Operations (Strike and Expeditionary), as well as to the support areas of Maritime Operations.
The VideoRay Pro 4 ROVs along with a host of attachments support the following METOC applications:
- Bottom Mapping, Subbottom Profiling, Bathymetry
- Acoustic & Optical Imaging
- Hurricane & Oil Spill Assessment Damage - Response and Restoration
- Water-column characterization, including:
- Temperature & Salinity Profiles
- Water Clarity
