SOSI is the Pacific Northwest's (Washington and Oregon) exclusive reseller of SeaBotix ROVs and equipment. SeaBotix vehicles are deployed worldwide in a variety of industries including military, oil & gas, research, hydro, search and rescue and port security. Scientists and students use basic ROV systems to extend their research capabilities, while Navies worldwide deploy the revolutionary systems in critical maritime security applications.


The LBV300 series of MiniROVs offer both extended depth and long line inspection capabilities. Two additional forward thrusters provide strong current capability and plenty of pulling power for up to 2,000 m (6,560 ft.) of umbilical in custom applications.

The SeaBotix LBV300-5 is the most complete and versatile MiniROV available. With over 730 units in operation around the world the LBV300 series is the result of feedback, testing and engineering.

Dual Vertical Thrusters

The LBV300 series is equipped with five (5) powerful, oil-compensated, Brushless DC Thrusters. There are 1-lateral, 2-forward, and 2-vertical thrusters, enabling maneuverability in four axes, just like a helicopter. Use of two vertical thrusters provide unprecedented vertical control/power. The additional lateral thruster adds the capability to fly sideways, allowing the operator to keep either camera on target while piloting along a ship hull or dam surface. On-the-fly, 10-step variable power control to each axis allows for smooth video and sensor recording. For added reliability, serviceability, and peace of mind, each thruster is identical and independent of the vehicle enclosure, ensuring no dynamic seals penetrate the vehicle’s electronics enclosure.

Long Tether

The LBV300 Series with 150 meters (500 ft.) of our revolutionary small diameter tether. Longer tethers are available. Managing the long tether is simple with the heavy duty reel. The extremely small-diameter of our tether presents at least 25% less drag than other systems meaning the vehicle is controlled by the operator, not the tether.

Intuitive Controls

Operation of the LBV300 series is simple with the standard Integrated Control Console featuring the acclaimed LBV Hand Controller. Standard Auto-Heading, Depth, and Trim, as well as all system functions are at your fingertips in a logical, simple layout. Added features include the 38 cm (15") monitor behind a waterproof panel, sunshade for direct light operations and sealed components for harsh environment operations. The programmable Video Overlay displays heading, depth, temperature, thruster gain settings, auto settings, cable turns, and time/date.

High-Quality Video and Sensor Data

The Fiber Optic video system provides crystal-clear images from the standard high-resolution color camera. The camera has a 270º field of view through 180º rotation of the camera enclosure. The internal, fully-adjustable LED Lighting array provides brilliant, white light as it tracks the color camera. Custom FSK electronics are included to provide an additional RS232 channel for options such as sonar for harsh environment operations. The programmable Video Overlay displays heading, depth, temperature, thruster gain settings, auto settings, cable turns, and time/date.
