Whilst holding the Cougar Compact steady in cross currents and operating with precise manoeuvrability, its six powerful thrusters allow it to handle a wide array of equipment, despite its size.
Bluestream required a flexible equipment plan for their Cougars which, like all Saab Seaeye robotic vehicles, are designed for easy customisation and enhancement with third-party systems.
The two Bluestream Cougar Compacts will be equipped with a Seaprince sonar, Kongsberg cameras and an underslung hydraulic skid ready for fitting an array of third-party equipment which includes, but not confined to, the FlexiClean tooling, subsea water jetting, shear-cutter, subsea excavation pumps, subsea sensors and an array of CP systems.
The ease of configuration and integration is a key advantage of Saab Seaeye’s design architecture says Bluestream who chose Saab Seaeye because they are the largest manufacturer of electric systems in the world with reliable and trusted technology that is familiar to their engineers.
The two Cougar Compacts join Bluestream’s fleet of 22 Saab Seaeye underwater robotic systems, a selection of which is shown here.
