Home / Products / PHANTOM® S-SERIES



The Phantom® S-Series is a portable, high-performance ROV that combines superior power, telemetry, and payload with ease of use, ruggedness and reliability. It can be configured with six or eight magnetically-coupled brushless Tecnadyne® thrusters to provide agressive lift capabilities at depths up to 1,000m. It delivers a powerful overall performance envelope and versatility compared to other inspection-class vehicles. It is designed for applications across a spectrum of industries, and even in the harshest of conditions.


The advanced technology of the Phantom® S-Series ROV platform offers powerful maneuverability and lift, incorporates an open architecture to integrate a wide variety of sensors, and is hand-built on a rugged, resilient, non-corroding polypropylene chassis that can accomodate heavier payloads.
