The ROV Luso is a remotely operated vehicle capable of diving to depths of 6,000m. For Portugal, it represents the ability to reach and operate on 100% of the ocean floor under national sovereignty (including the future area corresponding to the extension of the continental shelf) and 97% of the seabed on a global scale.
The "AC-ROV" and the "Observer" remote operation vehicle are 2 observation class vehicles characterised by a high degree of portability and internal batteries, allowing the system to operate in remote locations where it is difficult to access a power source.
