Underwater Video North is the first Yukon business to
provide underwater Remote Operated Vehicle service for exploring our northern
waters. The company has been in business since 1995 and is owned
and operated by Doug Davidge. For more information on Underwater
Video North, link to "Company Profile".
ROVs are robotics systems specifically designed for exploring both freshwater and marine environments.
The Super Scamp system shown at left is a light weight and compact submersible
color video camera and lighting system that is self-propelled and can be
manipulated and controlled remotely from the surface by a skilled operator.
ROVs offer a safe and reliable means to access and video tape underwater environments for any length of time at considerable depth, summer or winter.
This technology is particularly well suited for deployment in limiting
or high risk conditions such as under ice, in cold water, at night or where
there is a need to explore depths beyond the safe limits of scuba divers
for extended periods of time.
