This thesis is about the design of a thruster for remotely operated vehicle (ROV) to move the ROV underwater. Thruster are use to control the movement speed and also the depth of the ROV while under water. There are many types of ROV design and structure, and it all comes with different size of thruster design. The mount of the thruster on the ROV is the key to make the ROV move faster or slower. Self made water proof casing have to be made to apply the thruster inside the sealing case. The sealing has to be making perfect so that water won’t be leaking into the thruster. Two thrusters will be mounted at the rear side of the ROV for full speed to move forward. Two more will be place at the right and left front side of the ROV with a 45˚ angle. This will make the ROV turn faster than usual ROV. For deep control a single thruster will be place on the middle of the ROV. The prototype will be modeled and design using SOLIDWORKS. Two type of thruster are use, which is DC brushless motor and magnetic DC motor. The thruster will be control using a module controller of PS2 and connect to a motor driver PSC28A to control the movement of the motor. The design is going to be on a 12 voltage thruster powerful enough to go as deep as 5 meter. The DC motors are not water proof. The motors that are being use are high speed and torque and can go up to 18000 rotations per minutes (RPM). The design of the propeller and also the nozzle will increase the speed and accuracy movement of the ROV. As the result the thrusters is place perfectly at the ROV and are seal from leaking water. The power of the thruster can maneuver the ROV with low drag force and also diving and resurfacing the ROV is done by the thrusters force. The SMART ROV was completely built and the thrusters are place on the ROV to move the ROV underwater. The performances of the thruster are shown in the result. All the objective was complete achieves.
