L&T Defence To Make Unmanned Remote Operating Vehicle That Can Scan Sea Surface


L&T Defence, an arm of L&T, will manufacture and commercialise the unmanned remote operating vehicle (ROV) that can scan the sea surface in both shallow and deep waters. The company will get the technology from the National Institute of Ocean Technology (NIOT), Chennai. Facilitating this is a tripartite agreement signed between NIOT, under the Union Ministry of Earth Sciences (MoES), the NRDC, a corporation promoting indigenous technology transfer, and L&T.

The ROVs developed over the years and field-tested by the NIOT can operate up to depths of 500 metres in shallow waters and 6,000 metres in deep waters. They can be useful in generating images and data that find wide application in both civilian and military fields.

An MoU for the ROV was signed by M Purushotham, CMD of NRDC, S Ranganathan, Vice-President, L&T Defence, and M. A. Atmanand, Director, NIOT, in the presence of M Rajeevan, Secretary, Dept of Earth Sciences, in Hyderabad. Read More…
