    Remotely operated underwater vehicle GNOM is intended for inspection of underwater wrecks

    and other objects by video camera.

    The modern computer and telecommunication technologies are used in the device, and made it

    easy in handling, compact, light and inexpensive.

    These solutions allowed to use thin (only 6 mm diameter) and flexible communication cable for

    transmission data, power and video signals to/from vehicle. The special Kevlar threads have been

    used to improve the cable's tensile strength. Because of this fact, the device keeps the highest

    degree of stabilization what is very important for inspections. The vehicle has a good

    maneuverability and can easily turn on the spot.

    High-effective electric motors with magnetic couplings and hi-tech electronics are used in the

    vehicle, provide the fast speed of the GNOM with low power consumption.

    One of the most important features of this device is a possibility to operate it from PC and via

    Lan/Internet.

    The GNOM, in essence, an underwater helicopter with the video-camera which moves in any

    direction according to the operator's instructions.

    1. DESCRIPTION

    Thrusters are DC motors which are put into the aluminium halls . The rotation transmision to

    the screw propeller is realized with aid of magnetic coupling disks.

    One disk is fastened at the motor's shaft in the body, and the other one – at the screw

    propeller's shaft inside the cone-shaped head , which is filled up with water. The cone-

    shaped head may be removed by operator for cleaning ( see manual).

    The vehicle is connected with the operators console via thin cable, which transmits power

    voltage, operation instructions, data and video signal from the vehicle.

    The cable with diameter 6mm is stregthened by Kevlar threads (breaking effort is 90kg) and by

    additional polyehylene shield. The cable length is max up to 250m. To compensate the weight of

    vehicle and give neutral buoyancy to it, the float made of foam polysyren is used, and it is put

    in front part of vehicle. Similar floats can be put on the cable to change the neutral buoyancy to

    little positive buoyancy. Maximum operating depth of vehicle is 200m.

    Using the control pads and joystick the operator can move GNOM forward-backward, turn to the right – left, up – down; adjust the thruster speed and the lights brightness. All data is displayed on the monitor in "TV-text" mode. By pressing one of the buttons on the joystick the operator can pass to the menu of tuning up some vehicle's functions – calibrating of the
