Oceaneering Boosts Mission Support Capabilities
Oceaneering aims to stay ahead of the curve and develop technology and processes to meet our customers’ ever-changing needs. In 2016, Oceaneering opened its first dedicated Mission Support Center (MSC) in Stavanger, Norway, bolstered by 4G connectivity and remote piloting and automated control technology (RPACT). The MSC provides a base for supporting offshore operations by using remotely located personnel.
The MSC not only enables our customer to receive real-time feeds of operations, but to also actively engage and participate in these ROV missions. This is a perfect way for customers to optimize efficiencies, reduce carbon footprints, and operate in a more environmentally friendly manner. The MSC meets these criteria by requiring fewer mobilizations of personnel and providing access to specialists who are typically based onshore, thus optimizing time and resources for a more cost efficient operation.
Oceaneering offers mission support anywhere around the world.
Innovations That Shaped The Future
Founded in 1986, Saab Seaeye has grown to become the world leader in electric underwater robotic vehicles.
Their success comes from pioneering innovative underwater robotic technology that has changed the industry.
Innovations include brushless DC thrusters, polypropylene chassis, carbon fibre pressure vessels, high frequency power distribution, iCON distributed intelligence, fault-tolerant control systems with self-diagnostics, and advances in remote satellite control.
Systems range from the hugely successful metre-sized Falcon to the work-class Leopard, the most powerful vehicle of its size in the world. They were also first to merge ROV and AUV technologies in the shape of the Sabertooth.
All their vehicles are deployed across a vast array of demanding tasks in situations where they are renowned for working tirelessly over extended periods in the most challenging conditions.
During diving operations Saab Seaeye’s systems are widely used for support and safety, undertaking missions too risky for a diver, or examining locations before a dive, transporting tools and equipment between diver and surface, and watching over divers whilst they work.
New technologies are expanding the future potency of underwater robotic systems. Saab Seaeye is in the forefront of these cutting-edge developments through advancing intelligent control, miniaturisation and clever power to create systems that are smaller, smarter, lighter, more agile and more powerful.
