SEAMOR Chinook

The Chinook is an industrial grade inspection ROV with a wide range of capabilities. Explore depths up to 300 m (1,000′) with the standard vehicle or 600 m (2,000′) with the deep water version.

A true workhorse, the Chinook offers a stable platform yet remains compact. With its small profile, the Chinook can operate in tight places and is easily stowed when not in use. Multiple handles and frame cross members allow two people to handle this ROV with ease.

For greater versatility, customize your Chinook by adding accessories such as extra thrusters, navigational searching aids, manipulators, tool skids and more.
