DAVIS, CA - Schilling Robotics, LLC, experts in subsea systems, announced today the order for two (2) 150hp, 3,000m rated HD ROV systems from GMB USA, Inc. for delivery to the Republic of Korea (ROK) Navy. One system will be delivered for their Amphibious Submarine Rescue vessel and the second for their Auxiliary Towing Salvage vessel.


This order adds to the first HD purchased this year by the ROK Navy, reflecting the expansion of their salvage and rescue operations. The exceptional performance and configurability of the HD results in an ideal solution for their needs. "We are very pleased that the ROK Navy has recognized that Schilling's HD vehicle is the most technically advanced in the world, and has selected us to continue their expansion program," said Tyler Schilling, chief executive officer for Schilling Robotics.

The HD ROV provides increased reliability and availability through an integrated design philosophy for all major sub-systems. This drives a significant reduction in components, enables modular maintenance, and reduces major component replacement timeframes from potentially tens of hours, to one hour or less. The HD ROV also provides industry leading stability and position control accuracy to perform remote intervention activities.
