ROV Isis is the UK’s deepest-diving ROV dedicated for science. It is capable of doing high-definition video surveys, capturing high quality stills images and collection of precision samples from the seafloor at ocean depths of up to 6500 metres thanks to its sophisticated navigation systems, six thrusters, highly configurable tool sled and two robotic arms. The vehicle is operated from a containerised control room aboard the vessel, which consists of many screens and computers to aid the pilots and scientists to conduct scientific research. In addition to the high-definition cameras, it also has CTD for conductivity, temperature, depth measurements, suction sampler, temperature & turbidity probes, multibeam sonar, Niskin bottles, bio-boxes for sampling and surveying, as well as several science buses that enables integration of additional scientific equipment and sensors.
