CBP buys underwater camera and sonar from Videoray

Videoray's ROV

Customs and Border Protection has purchased one remotely-controllable underwater camera which can reach speeds of more than four knots, and an accompanying imaging sonar from Videoray, LLC, of Phoenixville, PA.

The combined contract, which was announced by CBP on April 27, is valued at $36,226.

CBP had earlier issued a solicitation calling for a remotely operated vehicle, or ROV, that could reach depths of 500 feet, weigh about 8.4 pounds, carry two 20-watt halogen lights and offer a 180-degree viewing angle.

“The Pro 3 XEGTO is also PC computer control enabled, allowing operators to control the ROV using included wired or wireless game controllers with a user-supplied laptop computer,” explains Videoray on its Web site. “The Pro 3 XEGTO can even be controlled by software applications or remotely via a network.”

“The Pro 3 XEGTO can easily accommodate recording devices, modular instrumentation and tools such as: scanning or imaging sonar for low visibility environments; manipulator for object retrieval or intervention; positioning system for exhaustive area searches; water quality sensor, metal thickness gauge, and more,” the company notes.

Further information is available from CBP’s Sharron White at 202-344-3889 or [email protected].
