VideoRay LLC has shipped 30 of its MicroROV units and four Lighted Auxiliary Zoom Inspection Camera (LAZIC) unites as part of a $500,000+ order from the Taiwan Coast Guard.
The VideoRays will reportedly be used for hull inspections and other underwater investigations to support Homeland Security initiatives. The systems purchased have a depth rating of 500 ft., 500 ft. of tether, a Tether Deployment System portable reel, two video cameras, and other features for quickly and easily inspecting underwater threats and investigating potential smuggling operations.
The four LAZIC units add zoom cameras that can be positioned to inspect deep into recesses in hulls and piers and maneuvered into locations humans cannot reach.
The systems will be used for drug interdiction and weapons searches throughout the coast of Taiwan.
