Very thin cable (2Ч3 mm diam) allows real working in a depth till 150m.


The main advantages of ROV Gnom:
  • Easy to use Ц everyone can operate the ROV using well known game joystick;
  • Very convenient for operations from any ship or boat Ц ROV can be launched from large vessel or even from rubber boat;
