US-based Deep Ocean Engineering (DOE) has unveiled a new electric, light work-class remotely operated underwater vehicle (ROV), the Phantom X8, designed for deep sea exploration and light intervention work.

The vehicle is the largest and most heavy-duty ROV manufactured by DOE and packs a robust design for deep sea maneuverability and power. 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.

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.

The Phantom X8's 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.
