Sonsub's Viper is a compact work-class ROV which combines the capability to perform a wide range of task-specific activities with cost effective project results.

Viper's high thrust-to-weight ratio results in a powerful and very capable system that retains the compactness and rapid deployment characteristics of smaller, less capable
observation-class ROV's.

The viper is ideally suited to work locations where space and deck loading is limited.The viper has the added advantage over a medium size electric vehicle in that it can be fitted
with a five function schilling manipulator. Other tooling options include a series of wire and soft line cutters along with torque tools, jet cleaning tools and other general
hydraulic tooling.

 

 

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.
