Explore the world beneath the water's surface without getting wet, using the Aquabotix Endura 100AQ Mini ROV for Aquaculture. This edition of the remote-operated vehicle is well-suited to studying marine life and environments, e.g., scouting locations for fish farms and then monitoring the fish and nets after the farm is built. It features a fish plow for the collection and removal of sick or dead ("mort") fish, in order to limit the spread of disease to the rest of the fish in a school. The vehicle can also be used to check water depths, water tanks, or the underside of your boat.

This ROV is submersible to 328' and provides a Full HD 1080/24p live video feed to the surface, which can be recorded, as well. In addition to video, the Endura will capture HD photos. It ships without the required, neutrally buoyant, copper tether/cable, which is available in various lengths. The tether connects to the included topside box, which generates its own Wi-Fi signal that allows you to connect your iPad or PC/Mac via the free, downloadable Aquabotix ROV app. This app lets you view the vehicle's live video feed on your computer's display and remotely control its movements and functions.

The Endura is equipped with 32GB of memory to hold captured video and photos, and optional, alternate configurations provide 128, 256, 512, 1024, or 2048GB for greater storage capacity. The camera features 120° tilt capability along with a wide-angle lens, and the dome port corrects for underwater size distortion that makes everything appear 25% larger and closer--thereby helping to restore wider coverage so you can fit more in the frame. Additionally, the ROV offers LED lighting that outputs an impressive 4400 lumens to help illuminate dark environments.

Five Swiss-made, high torque motors and left, right, and rear propellers drive the Endura through the water, giving you control over the vehicle's forward and vertical motion, and this AQ configuration also includes a lateral thruster and a high-output thruster for extra versatility and power. Another helpful feature of the Endura is its ability to carry a payload of up to 4 lb.

  • AQ edition also includes a lateral thruster and a high-output thruster for extra versatility and power.
Power
  • Runs on continuous topside AC power rather than a battery, so you can run it as long as you need without worrying about loss of power.
Orientation, Depth, Temperature, and Leak Detection Sensors
  • The orientation sensor provides you with readings on yaw, pitch, roll and heading relative to true north.
  • This sensor aids in navigation of the vehicle and is extremely useful in poor water quality conditions.
  • There's also a depth sensor that gives you readings on underwater depth of vehicle with extremely high accuracy.
  • This allows you to drive ROV to exact depth needed for your purposes, and record notes on what you find at different depths so you can locate them again.
  • Additional sensor detects and indicates temperature of water where vehicle is swimming, helping to ensure you're not going below the minimum for operating ROV, and allowing you to make note of differences in organisms and plant life at various temperatures.
  • Leak detection sensor notifies you immediately in unlikely event of a breach in vehicle's waterproof seal, so you can bring it to the surface right away.
