The vLBV300 is an exciting approach to small yet highly capable inspection ROV systems. The vLBV300 weighs 18kg in air with various payload packages are available. Vectored thruster configuration provides steady control in all horizontal directions making the vLBV300 suited to use offshore in demanding conditions. The vLBV300 has impressive bollard thrust between 18.1 and 22.5 kg forward. Thruster vector angle is variable from equal horizontal to forward optimized. Dual vertical thrusters offer greater vertical control and roll stabilization. The vLBV300 has undergone extensive mechanical design to optimize stability, capability, flexibility and serviceability. SeaBotix's in house ex-America's Cup physicist has carefully examined pressure zones, moment arms, center of gravity, meta center and more to produce this exceptional small ROV. Out of the box the vLBV300 is a stable platform. To capitalize on the stability the vLBV300 is able to accept a wide range of cameras, sensors, tools and more. Such as four video channels including HD, 4 high speed data channels and three high speed Ethernet channels. The  vLBV300 uses the low drag, fiber/copper tether that SeaBotix is known for. At 8.9mm nominal diameter and 100 kg working load the tether has minimal impact on the performance. The tether can be attached to the rear or top of the vLBV300 depending on conditions. SeaBotix MiniROV controls have been regarded as the most intuitive of all small ROVs. The vLBV300 is no different with the user friendly operator control unit and integrated control console. AUS-ROV have used the this ROV extensively in very demanding circumstances.  The vLBV300  is an exceptional bit of kit and has proved to be an invaluable testament to project success.
