JW Fishers’ ROVs Used for Tank Inspection Services

From military, police, fire, and rescue teams searching for lost evidence or drowning victims to commercial diving companies performing inspections on various types of tanks and ship hulls, ROVs have become a staple in underwater search and survey operations. JW Fishers’ Seaotter-2 and SeaLion-2 are the ROVs that many agencies purchase when they need the right tools for the job. A variety of options are available from a mountable sector scanning sonar (SCAN-650) to a Remote Metal Detector (RMD-1). Using an ROV in tandem with a SCAN-650 allows the end user to drive the vehicle around a target area shooting video while also scanning the area using sonar to create a detailed computer image of the surrounding environment. This proves to be quite useful when operating in dark water where video feed doesn’t quite do the job. The RMD-1 is another indispensable accessory that turns an ROV into a metal detecting machine and is interchangeable on ANY manufactures vehicle!
