• COMANCHE is a small work-class ROV system that has been designed to carry two manipulators such as the Schilling ‘Orion’ models. It incorporates a fully electric, seven thruster propulsion system, configured to provide high thrust and lifting capability. Two hydraulic systems can be incorporated to provide power for manipulators, tools and skids. A 3000 Volt/400 Hz power transmission system allows the use of a small diameter tether, giving the COMANCHE excellent station keeping during long tether excursions. The COMANCHE has been designed using Sub-Atlantic’s small vehicle technologies making it extremely cost effective and simple to operate & maintain by a two-man crew.





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.
