Deep Trekker to Launch Portable ROV line to Military Audience
AYR, ONTARIO CANADA. May 11, 2015. Deep Trekker Inc. announced today they will be attending the Special Operations Forces Industry Conference (SOFIC) this May 19 – 21st with an exclusive dockside demonstrations. The show is a premiere defense technology event, providing an ideal platform to introduce a new kind of underwater surveillance for social forces. The venue of Tampa Convention Center, boasts a unique opportunity for Deep Trekker to have open water demonstrations of their flagship product line the DTG2 Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV).
Deep Trekker is pleased to provide a product unlike any other on the market, with the only solution to have on-board batteries. In 2015, Deep Trekker introduced a new product line – the DTX2 with a more powerful and vectored thruster design, while still achieving the same portability as their DTG2 ROVs. Both the DTX2 and DTG2 ROVs greatly reduce diver intervention and improve visibility to water based operations. Military professionals are eager to increase safety when faced with an unknown threat or situation, the Deep Trekker ROVs equipped with a camera or in combination with sophisticated sonars, USBL positioning and thickness gauges can identify threats without putting a diver in harm’s way. The self-contained batteries allow for divers to launch their investigation from anywhere, as well as give them the ability to use an optional waterproof controller and take the ROV underwater with them as they dive. This allows a diver to send the ROV ahead to investigate around a corner, into a confined space or towards an unknown object while the diver stays a safe distance away.
With this opportunity, Deep Trekker has partnered with their reseller and service provider ROVEAL Underwater Robotics from the Florida area to help demonstrate the numerous benefits of a portable ROV system for underwater surveillance and inspections. “Veteran owned and operated, ROVEAL Robotics know what is important to military professionals,” commented Sam Macdonald, Deep Trekker President. “ROVEAL provides not only ROV inspection services but is available to train an entire team to effectively use the Deep Trekker ROVs for tactical operations.”
Be sure to visit the Deep Trekker team outside on the docks of the Tampa Convention Center to pilot the ROV yourself, and learn how a remotely operated vehicle could benefit your underwater investigations.
