-The Seaeye Cougar specification was developed in cooperation with Italian ROV operator DNT Offshore whose requirements included an ROV with the full interface capability of a Seaeye Lynx but with much greater payload and thrust to accommodate a wider range of tooling options for survey, drill support and other operations to a depth of 2000 metres.

-To meet this challenge Seaeye retained the proven shape of Lynx but increased the overall dimensions of the ROV by about 25%. Suitably rated buoyancy was added to provide an increase in payload from Lynx's 34 kg to Cougar's 80 kg. With these changes the vehicle's weight in air increases to 335 Kg.

-The increased thrust necessary for this larger ROV is provided by the new SM6 thruster; this is a development of the well established SM5 used in the Seaeye Panther and Panther Plus.

-Four vectored and two vertical SM6 thrusters provide the Cougar with an increase of 50% forward thrust over the Seaeye Lynx and increases of 40% and 67% thrust in the lateral and vertical directions respectively. As you can see from the video above, this propulsion system ensures that Cougar is as responsive, swift and as easy to manoeuvre as any other Seaeye ROV.

-In considering your choice of ROV, you could think of the Seaeye Cougar as filling the capability gap between a Seaeye Lynx and the Seaeye Panther.


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.
