Warfighters use software to improve their remotely operated vehicle experience

Warfighters use software to improve their remotely operated vehicle experience

In brief

One person-portable remotely operated vehicle (ROV) systems are increasingly being counted on to deliver support to expeditionary forces conducting underwater operations. Used to inspect and to help deploy payloads at significant depths, combat and EOD divers can count on these ROVs to provide intelligence ahead of a dive. Now packed with automation features, new generation micro ROVs have become precise inspection tools.

The challenge

Your warfighters are increasingly being relied upon to deploy, operate, and maintain complex tools in support of their operations. Diving teams have it harder than most as they need to deploy these tools underwater against currents, with low visibility and poor positioning references.

The solution

Developed by our technology partner EIVA, NaviSuite Mobula is a complete ROV software package with many advanced features for automatically and efficiently planning and performing ROV inspections, as well as enabling powerful data processing so operators can easily create high-quality, comprehensive data deliverables. Fully integrated from the factory with Defender ROVs from VideoRay, it provides your warfighters with a simple to use fly-by-wire control system. It delivers faster re-acquisitions and better data from which to make decisions.

The result

Combining NaviSuite Mobula with a micro ROV makes controlling the ROV a simple task. You can configure the user interface to suit your preferences. Flying the ROV is simple, simply drop a waypoint or select a set distance and direction and the ROV will automatically fly to that location. Use 2D, 3D and 4D model visualisations to improve your situational awareness. It’s also equipped with automatic sonar data cleaning and navigation processing tools that deliver improve your deliverables. In addition, it’s capable of generating fly-by videos or 3D visualisations to support your reporting and decision making. NaviSuite Mobula delivers actionable results enabling your warfighters to focus on information and not the process of acquiring it.

Intuitive user interfaces make operations more effective.

Forcys can enhance your experience with other innovative, advanced tools such as wireless acoustic initiation triggers, inertial navigation systems or optical systems from our technology partners at Sonardyne and Voyis. We can also support your autonomy programme with the integration of automatic target recognition using NaviSuite Deep Learning, or VSLAM computer vision, which lets you create 3D models using a single camera.
