Over the years SeaBotix and Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) has collaborated on the design and development of a set of systems that were in need by the Swedish Armed Forces’ EOD unit. The requirement for the systems was the need to have a ROV ability to survey underwater environments in order to localize explosive charges on ship hulls, quays, bridge foundations and other areas. Use of a small ROV was deemed preferable to divers from a personal safety point of view and the more enduring method of survey.
There were many requirements set forth in the development of a solution including portability, ease of operation, capability, versatility and integration. Among them the integrated LYYN video enhancer.
