The remote operated vehicle Victor provides the scientific community with the opportunity to explore depths up to 6000m. It is able to:
- carry out cruises dedicated to the monitoring and survey of research zones.
- study areas requiring video and acoustic inspection, sensor data recovery and object manipulations.
Victor 6000 may also be used for operations on wrecks and is a highly effective platform for technological development.
