ROV-system I er permanent plassert ombord i M/S Scuba, og kan opereres parallelt med dykkeroperasjoner.

ARGUS Mariner 1 er en mellomklasse elektrisk arbeids-ROV, med 6 kraftige, børsteløse thrustere for sikker og stabil operasjon ned til 1000 mvd.

ROVen har to manipulatorer samt mulighet for montasje og drift av flere typer hydrauliske verktøy.

Sonar, flere kameraer, lys og undervannsnavigasjonsutstyr gjør den velegnet tilrene arbeidsoperasjoner, samt til inspeksjon, søk og kartlegging.

Alle posisjonsdata blir lagret i datasystemer ombord, og er tilgjengelige for senere dokumentasjon av traseer, søkeområder og lignende.
