Teledyne SeaBotix Upgrades U.S. Department of Defense ROV Fleet

Teledyne SeaBotix has secured an operational capability upgrade contract with the U.S. Department of Defense through distributor, Atlantic Diving Supply (ADS).

The upgrade program will result in delivery of sixty new Teledyne SeaBotix vLBV300 remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) for explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) mobile units around the globe.

EOD Mobile have utilized the capabilities of Teledyne SeaBotix LBV and vLBV ROVs for several years.

The new SeaBotix vLBV 300 will be fitted with a range of equipment, including SeaBotix’s tracked crawler attachment skid, imaging sonar, tooling options, altimeter and USBL/GPS navigation capability plus the Teledyne Marine autonomous ROV navigation package – SmartFlight.

“Teledyne SeaBotix is honored to be awarded this contract,” said William Kikendall, president of Teledyne SeaBotix.

“Teledyne SeaBotix ROVs are robust and reliable systems that are used by EOD and other military and security forces. The systems perform a variety of critical functions for the military but also serve to keep the men and women of our military out of harm’s way.”
