Sarcos Technology and Robotics has announced that Atlantas Marine bought two Guardian Sea Class robotic systems and a support package. Sarcos delivered the systems in the third quarter of 2023.
The Guardian Sea Class is a teleoperated, dual-armed manipulation system with six-function dexterity per arm and performs in depths of up to one kilometer (1,000 meters). When integrated with VideoRay’s Defender ROV, which delivers exceptional power and maneuverability, it is expected to enable operations in currents up to four knots. The use of the Guardian Sea Class system reduces the need for divers to work in dangerous underwater conditions, allowing for safer, faster operations.
“We are looking forward to putting the integrated Sarcos and VideoRay underwater system to work,” said Charlie Foll, Chief Executive Officer, Atlantas Marine. “One of the key pillars of our business is providing the world’s most comprehensive and sought-after subsea offshore inspection services using the highest quality equipment. The Guardian Sea Class helps ensure we provide the best service to our customers while keeping our employees safe.”
The Guardian Sea Class system is electronically driven, eliminating the added weight, size and expense of hydraulic power unit systems, lowering maintenance costs and reducing the risk of system downtime. When paired with VideoRay’s Defender ROV, it augments the ROV’s existing capabilities, flexibility and upgradeability, to perform a varied range of complex and precise tasks using handheld tools and sensors.
