Manufacturer: VFTech
Availability: Usually ships in 3-4 weeks, on request only, no refunds
The Gnom Baby-02 is a really micro-ROV sized vehicle that has all main features inherited from larger underwater systems. It´s an entry level ROV for users who require very basic underwater camera functionality on a limited budget. This micro-ROV is equipped with a vertical tilt camera like the one that can be found on the other more advanced GNOM ROVs. The Gnom Baby can be used in a wide range of applications including recreation, scientific, aquaculture, underwater structure inspection (boat hulls, docks, bridges, walls, locks, pipe lines, etc.), marine security, search and rescue, potable water and hydro.

The Gnom Baby-02 is a really micro-ROV sized vehicle that has all main features inherited from larger underwater systems. It´s an entry level ROV for users who require very basic underwater camera functionality on a limited budget. It has a very small size, thin umbilical cable and very high manoeuvring capability which allows operating in hard-to-reach places including inside sunken wrecks. This micro-ROV is equipped with a vertical tilt camera like the one that can be found on the other more advanced GNOM ROVs. 

Many of the tasks assigned to work class ROVs – or human divers – is shallow (less than 300m) and involves searching, inspecting, or surveying underwater. These tasks are ideally suited to GNOM mini ROV technology. Smaller, lighter, ROVs that consume very little power can be deployed from many different areas or rigs and ships. Since they have very little mass, they can be safely used on comparatively delicate machinery without fear of damage.

Launching simply involves heaving the submersible by hand into the water. They can be deployed in sea states that would be too dangerous for larger machines. Their thrust to weight ratio for a small tether means that mini ROVs can be handle more current than most work class ROVs in shallow waters.
