Global Diving & Salvage, Inc. announces the acquisition of a Saab Seaeye Falcon ROV, adding substantial capacity to their existing fleet of underwater vehicles.


The Falcon, depth rated to 1000 feet, will be fully outfitted with manipulator, high resolution color and black and white cameras, fast scanning sonar, and a digital altimeter. Lightweight and portable it goes where needed - inshore, offshore, down tunnels, or for flyaway operations. The Falcon provides added capabilities to Global’s current diverse fleet of ROVs. In addition to the Falcon, assets include a Saab Seaeye Cougar XT, a Spectra DS 4, two Benthos Stingrays, two Video Ray Pro 3 XE’s, and an Inuktun Versatrax 150 Pipe Crawler. Global also maintains an array of navigation and positioning systems to support its remote technology operations.

“The extended array of tooling and sensor packages available for the Falcon makes it a valuable addition to our ROV fleet. The Falcon extends our range of capabilities to insure we have an ROV to match any customer’s needs,” states Eric Crumpton, Manager of Global Diving & Salvage’s ROV Division. “We are excited about the new opportunities that this acquisition will bring and are fully committed to expanding our market share in the remote technology arena.”
