Outland Technology announced its newest ROV model, the Outland 2000, which boasts twice the power and heavier payload of the Outland 1000. The Outland 2000 comes with a larger frame that allows for even more room to add various tools and sonars, the manufacturer said.

“Demand for the new Outland 2000 has been swift out the gate,” remarked Outland Vice President Jeffrey Mayfield.  “Two units were sold before the design of the unit was even complete and interest continues to grow. It was extremely well received at the Oceanology 2014 show in London this March, resulting in significant sales.”  

With the introduction of the Outland 2000, the company also revamped the console for both models and made them modular, meaning one for high voltage (power unit) and one for low voltage (control unit).  The models also feature a brand new hand controller and tool controller. The new hand controller includes depth, heading (compass or gyro), cruise controls, and an option for altimeter depth control.  There is also an option to show CP contact or proximity readings on the screen.

Outland is also now shipping both models with brighter LED lights, a standard second camera to be mounted rear-facing that can be moved about the ROV, and digitally-controlled cameras.

In the works are many more enhancements to both models such as digitally controlled thrusters, HD Camera and a new wrist rotate grabber.
