MacArtney Delivers Focus 2 ROTV to German WTD 71

German navy research institute, WehrTechnische Dienststelle, WTD 71, has taken delivery of MacArtney Focus 2 ROTV system.

WTD 71, with the main task of developing new underwater technologies for the German navy, will use Focus 2 ROTV as a tool for their research efforts.
