San Jose-based Deep Ocean Engineering (DOE) has announced the addition of a new type of remotely operated vehicle (ROV) to its product line, the Phantom X8.

This electric, light work-class, vehicle is the largest and most heavy-duty ROV manufactured by DOE and packs a robust design for deep sea maneuverability and power.

Deep Ocean Engineering designed the Phantom X8 with deep sea exploration and light intervention in mind.

Its performance at depths up to 1,000 meters is adaptable for various underwater tasks in any condition.

Applications for the X8 include pipeline inspection/routing, offshore wind farm maintenance, infrastructure repair, survey research and many more.

Configured with six vectored horizontal and two vertical 2.2 kW Tecnadyne brushless thrusters, the Phantom X8 has complete control and authority in any given direction, even in the toughest currents, DOE said.

For clarity underwater, the Phantom X8 boasts high definition (1080p) front (+/-90°) (pan optional) and rear (low light) cameras with 3 LED lights emitting 30,000 total Lumens with adjustable brightness controlled by the pilot control box or GUI. Auto functions for heading, altitude, depth, and positioning guide and control the ROV for diligent underwater tasks and inspections.
