As well as being the largest ROV operator, the company is also the world’s largest manufacturer of ROV systems. Its ROV fleet includes 2,500 to 3,000 meter (8,200 – 9,840 ft) rated Work Class systems, 4,000 meter (13,100 ft) rated Millennium Work Class systems, and 8,000 meter (26,250 ft) rated Ultra Deepwater systems.

Both Divinycell HCP and BTMI Syntactic Foams are used in Oceaneering’s ROVs. Divinycell HCP can be used from sea level to 700 meters (2,300 ft.) and offers very low buoyancy loss and water absorption under long-term loading conditions. BTMI Syntactic Foams, which are distributed by Diab, offer very high buoyancy per kilo and can be supplied in various depth ratings up 10,000 meters (32,800 ft.). This means they can be operationally deployed in the deepest parts of any of the world’s oceans.
