ROVs are increasingly being adopted by navies, coast guards, and port authorities around the globe. They have also been widely adopted by police departments and search and recovery teams. They are used for a variety of underwater inspection tasks such as explosive ordnance disposal (EOD), meteorology, port security, mine countermeasures (MCM), and maritime ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance).
Total Containment Vessels are designed to confine explosives (IEDs/Suspected Bombs) found at public place or controlled safe detonation of IEDs/Suspected Bombs. Their basic objective is to minimize/ suppress the possible damage which may result due to explosion.
