Saab Seaeye receives Falcon ROV order

4th December 2017 - 13:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Saab Seaeye has received an order for a Falcon remotely operated vehicle (ROV) from the Korean Coast Guard, the company announced on 30 November.

The Falcon will give the coast guard improved resources to carry out maritime search and rescue and underwater inspection, a requirement identified following the 2014 sinking of the MV Sewol ferry. 

The Korean Coast Guard’s 300 metre rated version of the Falcon will feature advanced iCON behaviour-based intelligent control architecture that will make station-keeping possible and enable fine position adjustment to reduce the operator’s workload.

Its surface control console display will be translated into Korean and feature a wide, high-resolution touchscreen monitor, customisable graphic user interface and the ability to record video and still images.

Falcon, powered by five powerful thrusters, uses an intelligent distributed control system configured in a small, easily manhandled 1x0.5x0.6 metre versatile chassis. Its design allows a wide range of equipment to be interchanged for different tasks.
