Philosophy

Identifying drag resistance of the umbilical cable as the true operational limit of any Remotely Operated Vehicle, Idrobotica has concentrated its development efforts in powering all its PLUTO ROVs from internal batteries thus requiring a cable for communication only of very small diameter to merely 3.6mm.
This solution did not allow round the clock operational profiles as required by most industrial applications, but it has opened unexplored opportunities to operate in extreme tidal current conditions at great distances from the launching site.
Not only has this philosophy demonstrated to be successful with international sales to World Navies for Mine clearance operations, but it has contributed to rendering any PLUTO system truly portable and autonomous, without the need of expensive fixed installations or ship redesign, and without the need of outside power sources.
