We’ve received some positive comments on the SRV-8’s design and functionality at DSEI last month, the world leading event that connects governments, national armed forces, industry thought leaders and the global defence & security supply chain on an unrivalled scale. In addition to the materials we handed out at the show, the following information will summarize the key features of the SRV-8.
The SRV-8 operates with extreme agility, similar to that of an aerial drone – able to move instantaneously in any direction with precision. With RJE’s exclusive 8 thruster DVC (dynamic vector control) and advanced programming, the SRV-8 is easily manipulated in most current conditions and underwater environments.
Learning to fly the SRV-8 is simple and takes 3 minutes or less to set-up and deploy. The standard Xbox joystick controller allows for intuitive operation for any marine professional.
The SRV-8’s hot-swappable battery modules, available in both lithium and nickel-metal hydride, allow you up to 6 hours of mission time on a single charge. Keep station longer, and deeper with a 305 meter (1,000 feet) depth rating, no generator required. The SRV-8 is ranked one of the highest in it’s class for small ROV operation.
