Propulsion System

The vehicle is propelled by four of Sub-Atlantic’s
innovative SPE-75 ‘wet’ thrusters (two axials, one
lateral and one vertical). The thrusters are
designed to run full of water or oil.
Each thruster incorporates a quick-change twoscrew
structural and electrical connection to the
Propulsion Module allowing change-out in minutes.

Telemetry System

Downlink - 8 analogue channels, 12 bit resolution. 16 digital switch channels.
Uplink – 8 analogue channels, 12 bit resolution, 16 digital switch
channels. Telemetry baud rate – 57.6k
Communication – one RS485 and one free RS232

Spare functionality inbuilt as standard:
8 switchable relays, 4 digital and 1 analogue uplink, 2 analogue
downlink, RS232 communications and 24 & 300 vdc power supplies with user defined spare power supply slot.

Optional Equipment

The NAVAJO will support the following additional equipment which is
available as options to the standard specification: -
• Dual Frequency Sonar
• Low Cost Sonar
• Profiling Sonar
• Side Scan Sonar
• Bathymetric and Oceanographic Sensors

At last, a truly versatile ROV system suitable for offshore and inshore use. NAVAJO’s size and weight allows it to be transported and deployed from a hatchback car, yet it is large enough to provide a stable platform for video/sonar surveys unlike many “miniature” systems on offer today. NAVAJO has also been designed to carry and control dedicated task-specific work skids as well as small manipulators making this vehicle more than just an “eyeball”. Enhanced reliability and low cost of purchase and ownership have been achieved by the elimination of cables and connectors, Sub-Atlantic’s unique “wet” thruster and a simple modular design using corrosion resistant plastics.

Offshore - Diver observation, structure inspection, tooling operations, pipeline survey
Inshore - Dam, river, bridge inspections
Military – Surveillance, ordinance disposal
Coast Guard – Homeland Security, hull and seabed inspection, search, rescue and recovery, drugs enforcement
Harbour - Hull, quay inspections
Fish farming – Cage and seabed inspection, dead fish removal
Independent owner/operators - because it is portable and affordable



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.
