Nova Ray® ROV
The Infinitely Maneuverable Towable Nova Ray® ROV
The Nova Ray is the only submersible remotely operated vehicle (ROV) capable of operating at depth or altitude from a moving surface platform, thereby avoiding obstacles or crashing into the sea floor. It seamlessly shifts from thruster power to “controlled-tow” as needed. This results in up to 7 times the savings of time and money compared the closest competitors’ systems.
Nova Ray is the most powerful in-current and under-tow control maneuverable ROV. Sustained maneuverability in up to 10 knot currents! Fully controllable under tow!
The Nova Ray’s unique hydrodynamic features effectively use water flow rather than resistance to maintain operational control under changing operating modes. Under thruster power, the wings operate just as a high-winged airplane would in free flight. Under “controlled” tow, the arcuate wing, combined with the seamless shift in the center of rotation from the cable pull, produces a stable configuration.
