Abstract: In this paper, an ROV is designed and developed for the purpose of underwater surveillance. The development begins by stipulating the design specification and consideration to narrow down the operating scope of the particular ROV. Four aspects have been considered when designing this ROV; mechanical, frame, actuator and power. The primary task of this ROV is to explore and inspects the underwater structure so, it will be equipped with colour video camera with tilting capability and wide aperture lighting. Additional kits such as sensors are used to detect the position and know the exact location of the ROV. The designed ROV is a class 1 ROV which is pure observation vehicle that has at least 4 DOF for easing the navigation through the rough underwater environment. The design concept of this ROV is split into many parts; structural frame, propulsion system, control system, power system, tether and video. The developed ROV is suitable for inspection of underwater building and bridge platform as well as underwater cabling and piping for oil and gas companies.
