Oceanus Hybrid & Hybrid Plus ROV systems

Offering commercial grade performance in a cost-efficient package, the Hybrid class is loaded with features. 

OCEANUS HYBRID ROV SYSTEM

System Overview

Designed, engineered and manufactured on-site, the inspection class Oceanus Hybrid is built tough to perform in harsh marine environments. With a top speed of 5 knots, and the ability to dive to a maximum of 100 m (328 ft), the Oceanus Hybrid is well-suited for marine sector industries that typically rely upon dive teams to conduct environmental assessments and inspection missions. With a total shipping weight of approximately 44.0 kg (97 lbs), the Oceanus Hybrid  is a portable option that is easily transported and operated by one person. Constructed of marine-grade materials, each ROV is hand-assembled and rigorously tested before delivery, and each system backed by our Peace of Mind Guarantee and a 2-year limited warranty.

Oceanus Topside Control Case

Weighing 9.53 kg (21 lbs), the topside control case is a rugged, self-contained, waterproof case that serves as the operational hub of the Oceanus Hybrid ROV system. A built-in control console provides access to AC power connections, tether connections, two USB ports, and one auxillary port.

The primary sunlight-readable, splash-resistant 12-inch display displays video feed captured by the ROVs on-board camera system that is easily viewable in any light condition. A secondary 10.1-inch TFT touch active matrix display is dedicated to MarineNav's proprietary touch-activated Flight Control Software, where all critical ROV readings are accessed, and adjustments made by a simple touch. A generous 250 GB Solid State Drive is built into the topside case, enabling storage of hours of captured video. 

Flight Control Software

Oceanus Hand Controller

The third module of the Hybrid system is a hand-held joystick controller that is fully-integrated to function with the topside Flight Control Software. The Oceanus joystick is a 3-axis controller featuring Hall-effect technologies providing trouble-free control of ROV motion.

Directional joystick movements provide forward or rear thruster thrust, lateral left, or lateral right movement. The joystick head controls ROV left and right turn commands. A side-mount dial controls the rate of ROV ascent and descent, while twelve controller buttons provide easy access to frequently used ROV functions, also accessed through the Flight Control Software.
