VideoRay has obtained another multimillion-dollar order for Defender systems under an existing $49 million contract to deliver the Next Generation ROV for the USN.

The ROVs, which include an extensive EOD toolkit, will be assembled and tested at the VideoRay facility in Pottstown, Pennsylvania before being to being shipped to the Navy for worldwide operations.

Sensors from Greensea, Blueprint Subsea, Nortek and Eddify will be integrated onto the Defender ROV platform.

‘This order is the culmination of years of tight integration with many Navy units in San Diego,’ said Scott Bentley, CEO of VideoRay.

The procurement process was facilitated through the Defense Innovation Unit, which provided open communications and a competitively awarded production contract.

Shephard Defence Insight notes that Defender utilises interchangeable, modular components residing on a single network, allowing a thruster, cameras, sensors and tooling to be added, removed or replaced.
