Swordfish is a powerful inspection ROV, designed for excellent maneuverability under severe conditions up to a working depth of 600 meters (2,000 ft.). A bottom-mounted skid unit can be attached to expand the payload and carry specialized sensors, tooling and survey/inspection suites — such as the Reson 8125 Seabat sonar, manipulator, snap hook and rope reel.



We try to provide the most up to date, recent specifications on these ROV systems. However, ROV system specifications are changing all the time, so please double check with the manufacturer to insure the specifications are correct before making a decision in using or purchasing these systems.
