-Subsea 7 has developed the Hawkeye from the well-known Seaeye 600 observation class vehicle. The Hawkeye complements the proven reliability of the Seaeye 600 with superior thrust capabilities allowing the vehicle to operate through underwater currents of up to two knots, increased operational depth capability allowing the vehicle to operate to 500msw and improved electronics providing higher quality video images.

-The ROV can be operated in free-swimming mode or from a tether management system (TMS). In free-swimming mode it can be launched using either a fixed davit or a launch frame integrally mounted in the control van. Deployment with the TMS enhances the operational capabilities of the system in heavier weather conditions and vessel deployed operations.

-The Hawkeye is available with a counter balanced launch and recovery system, which negates the need for welding the launch skid to the deck. This makes it an ideal system for fixed offshore installations where welding restrictions may apply.



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.
