ECA sells K-SterK-Ster is a self-powered ROV (embedded batteries) linked to the surface for real-time control with a thin fibre optic. K-Ster has initially been designed as a low-cost mine-killer for clearing mine fields.

It is also available in an inspection version for oil & gas applications particularly adapted to limited access areas. K-Ster is featuring a patented tiltable head with a payload of up to 5 kg, carrying camera, light and sonar or other types of sensors.

K-Ster's low weight (50 kg) allows an easy deployment of the vehicle and gives a light and portable solution for short inspection tasks in water depth down to 300 metres, up to 1000 m from its launching point. K-Ster is a powerful vehicle able to hover even when facing strong current. Its operational speed is over 6 knots.
