The Evolution Of The Nova Ray® Patented Winged ROV
A Historical Overview!
Over the years the inventors of the Nova Ray ROVS, Marc & Krist Geriene, brothers, have lived lives of experience under the oceans of the world, and have personally dived in most of them.
Marc Geriene and Krist Geriene were not only experienced commercial divers, but very experienced remotely operated vehicle (ROV) operators as well.
It was through this vast reservoir of personal hands (or maybe flippers) on experience that they recognized the poor ROVs (and AUVs) designs that still exist today. Before the Nova Ray, nothing could handle the kinds of currents, or deliver the necessary stability needed for today’s highest resolution senors. From that they conceptualized, prototyped, and developed numerous patented technologies essential for providing ROV stability and control, including both the Arcuate Wing and the innovative tether/cable attach mechanisms on the Nova Rays.
These were the motivating factors behind the past and current development of the Nova Ray family of extreme performance ROVs.
