ROV Equipment Hire

Basic hire packages include access to the Sofar Trident with a 25m long tether packed into a rugged “carry-on” sized case.

To control Trident you will also need an Android device running the Sofar Trident mobile app. If you don’t have one of these then don’t worry, we can provide one upon request.

To help you go further and to dive deeper, an additional 100m long tether is available upon request. This extra long tether comes with its own reel for fast and easy tether management.

For additional capability, we also offer the BlueROV2 Heavy system with a range of optional features such as the grabber, DVL and UGPS navigation (POA).

Training to get you started

Because underwater exploration is so much more than just a device.

To help you set out in the right direction, seeUnderSea provides an instruction manual and access to basic training materials covering ROV safety and operation as part of our standard hire packages

Additional training can be arranged upon request to increase your skills and to improve your ability to use Trident as an effective tool for underwater exploration. Topics include mission planning, methods for interacting with and observing physical objects, underwater image collection and introduction to marine science/engineering observations.
