VROV is a 3D interactive real-time simulation system which supports the complete range of AUVs, Inspection and Work Class ROVs, and the full spectrum of sensor and intervention subsystems. Since 1999, VROV has set the standard in interactive, real-time subsea simulation, featuring fully interactive tether dynamics, manipulator functionality and high-fidelity sonar and graphics simulation.

The goal of the system continues to be the enhancement of the safety and productivity of marine assets and operations:
- As an instructional tool, VROV provides a cost-efficient opportunity for a trainee to gain valuable stick-time and operational familiarity while minimizing risk to personnel and ROV equipment.
- As a design and engineering tool, it consistently demonstrates its value in testing the form and function of subsea assets, including vehicles, tools and structures control software, and in facilitating training in operation and installation of assets.
