World’s first omnidirectional ROV
Mantsbrite Marine Electronics has been appointed as UK and Irish Distributor for the FIFISH V6, the world’s first omnidirectional remotely operated underwater vehicle (ROV).
The FIFISH V6 is powered by six thrusters allowing precise control and manoeuvrability by enabling the ROV to move sideways, forwards/backwards, up/down, roll, pan, tilt and yaw down to a maximum depth of 100m at a speed of up to 3 knots. Run time on a single battery charge is four hours.
Features include the proprietary Posture Lock and Depth Lock. Posture Lock allows the user to set the pitch or roll angle to within 0.1° then lock this angle whilst the Depth Lock allows the user to lock the depth at which it operates.
The integrated Sony 4K UHD camera has an ultra-wide angle lens giving 166° field of view compared to the typical 95°. With two variable intensity 2000 lumen LED headlights the FIFISH V6 can be used to record video or take photos even when there is no ambient light. The 2.5 aperture camera delivers 4K footage at 30 frames per second or can film at 1080p with a resolution of 120 fps.
The handheld controller connects via Wi-Fi to a smart phone or tablet which provides real time video footage displayable on up to three devices at once. There is also the option of a virtual reality headset which can control the direction of the ROV, as if the user were on board.
FIFISH is a strong advocate for ocean conservation with 1% of its profits designated for the CleanSea project.
