VIDEO: Teledyne Marine TSS HydroPACT 660E Presentation

01.05.2022
The Teledyne TSS HydroPACT660E detection system is a new benchmark for smaller ROVs developed from over 30 years of subsea pipe & cable survey experience. Through a smaller innovative single coil sensor, and single 24Vdc subsea electronics Pod with lower power requirements the HydroPACT660E can be fitted to and controlled by much smaller ROVs. This can significantly reduce the cost of pipe, cable and UXO surveys normally carried out by much larger work class ROVs.
