all over the world worry about each day. At
the end of 2004, many ports, tankers and vessels
owners moved forward towards completing their
requirements with IMO's International Ship and
Port Security Code (ISPS) along with the US
Coast Guard's Maritime Security Act (MTSA).

ROV’s can be used in many places where
humans cannot go, but more importantly they
can be used in places where humans might not
want to go due to security risks. Along with
safety, they also provide an excellent cost
effective alternative to divers. With a
skilled pilot operating an ROV, many tasks
could even be performed quicker than a diving operation.
