The introduction of ROVs has greatly enhanced the ability of marine scientists to carry out a wide range of subsea investigations; however even ROVs still require complementary tools in order to tackle certain tasks.

The K.U.M. Scoop Net has been designed for use with ROVs in order to collect subsea samples. The net features a T-shaped handle that can be easily attached to an ROV to scoop and hold samples until they can be recovered. Additionally, a metal blade is placed at the bottom of the Scoop Net aperture to protect the net from tearing as well as to aid in the collection of samples (e.g. shells). 

The Scoop Net is available either as Polyamide 6, 1×1 mm mesh, which has an operating temperature of up to 50°C, or as PTFE glass fibre 1×1/2×2/4×4 mm mesh with an operating temperature of up to 250°C.
