Precision Control for Subsea Exploration

Maneuvering a remote-operated vehicle (ROV) through swirling currents and across unpredictable seabed terrain requires a higher level of motion control. Moog plays a key role in electrical and hydraulic control of ROV thrusters and manipulators as well as on ancillary equipment such as cameras and sonar.

Our servovalves are widely used in ROV thruster valve packs for accurate directional and lift control of the ROV during underwater maneuvering.

The miniature size of other servovalves make them the preferred choice for the valve pack of the manipulator, performing robotic tasks with precision while keeping weight to a minimum.

Moog also designs highly reliable pressure-compensated slip rings, and fiber optic joints and multiplexers for ROVs and communications in subsea exploration.
