Seaeye Puma is depth rated to 1000 metres and provides an exceptional and versatile performance envelope. Two PUMA versions are available. For optimum video capability, three simultaneous video channels are provided via two, dual fibre optic video multiplexers. As a lower cost option, two simultaneous video channels with a third switched television camera can be provided with video transmission via twisted screened pairs, (STP).

Six Seaeye SM4M thrusters, providing additional vertical dynamic lift, power PUMA. PUMA also provides a larger payload than other vehicles of this size, two individually controlled lighting channels, a pan and tilt unit with position feedback of camera angles, an optional tooling skid and greater interface capability for tools and sensors as well as the additional camera capability and fibre optic option. These enhancements are highlighted in italics in this Investment Guide.

A basic ROV system comprises the Surface Power Supply Unit, Surface Control Unit, Hand Controller, and Vehicle unit. The Surface Unit and PSU can be supplied free standing or containerised. This Control Container can be Zone II rated or rated for safe area operations and can be air-conditioned.

Free swimming operations are possible with up to 350 metres of umbilical. For operations with tether lengths greater than 350 metres it is necessary to use the Seaeye Puma Tether Management System (TMS). The TMS is a garage with a bale arm system with a 200 metre tether cable capacity.

A skid mounted 'A' frame and lifting winch with 1100 metres of armoured lift umbilical is offered as a compact combined unit to launch and recover a TMS garaged Seaeye Puma. This can be offered rated for hazardous area Zone II operations or to A60 standard for 'safe area' operations and is known as a 'LARS' or Launch and Recovery System. Alternatively you may have your own crane available and may only require the lifting winch and armoured umbilical with an umbilical sheave and a lock-latch release mechanism and vehicle bullet for launch and recovery.
