It is ideal for efficient large-area sweeps, reconnaissance missions, and fast hull inspections; capable of operating in adverse, high current situations that most production ROVs can not.
-Nova Ray is modular and easily re-configurable to accommodate a variety of survey instrumentation suites to support mission specific tasks.
