ROVsim Gen3

ROVsim Gen3

ROVsim Gen3 is a PC based ROV simulation program intended for ROV pilot training and familiarizaton. It includes two ROVs, 17 missions and a complete set of user controls, including: sea state, current, visibility, day/night, input, collisions, serial data output, etc. Working and observation class ROVs often work in pairs, and ROVsim Gen3 was specifically designed to include that training requirement.
