and improved electronics providing higher
quality video images.
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
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.
