Subsea technology company Triton will supply specialist surveillance equipment to the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD).

The company will supply the Comanche Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) to be used for multi-beam survey and salvage work around the UK coastline.

The ROV is already being deployed by Spanish Coastguard authorities.

The delivery of the ROV is part of a million-figure contract with Triton from the MoD.
