When time matters most, have eyes in the water in seconds
Search and recovery missions are dangerous for divers and time is critical. Deep Trekker remotely operated vehicles provide real-time visual and allow you to deploy tailor-made tools such as sonar, to navigate and locate through turbid waters; and a grabber arm, to retrieve victims or evidence.
Accessible to all teams
Smaller Regions and Volunteer Team Also Benefit From ROV Ownership. Deep Trekker ROVs can provide an extremely cost-effective underwater observation solution for immediate deployment to inspect waterways, or areas of interest even while waiting on outside departments to arrive. Purchasing an ROV can be a more affordable long-term solution and provide a piece of mind to the community and reduce costs associated with bringing in marine units from neighboring jurisdictions.
Law Enforcement and Police Rescue operations
Many cities and police units have a marine unit to assist police and other first responders. A remote operated vehicle for law enforcement agency use can aid a diving team and facilitate search and rescue operations to locate drowning victims. ROVs can also help first responders in their underwater rescue efforts. Search sites are often in treacherous waters; an additional ROV can complement the marine unit to provide additional safety by monitoring of police divers.
Why Deep Trekker for Search and Rescue?
30 second deployment time
Launch in the most remote areas with no topside power or boxes required
Gaming style controller to significantly reduce the learning curve
Sophisticated Options such as Sonar and USBL Positioning Systems
Affordable robust equipment
Record investigations on the Deep Trekker DVR with voice-over capabilities
Identifying targets of interest
Paired with a side scan sonar, Deep Trekker ROVs are the perfect tool for target identification. Even in low visibility water, the ROVs equipped with imaging sonar can effectively navigate to targets of interest.
Victim and evidence recovery
When a target has been identified, Deep Trekker ROVs are used for the retrieval process. Once the ROV is on location, divers can follow the tether to the target. If the divers are limited by depth and temperature, the retrieval can be completed using the ROV grabber arm.
Rapid search response
Timing is critical during all search missions. With no topside power required, Deep Trekker ROVs can be ready and deployed within seconds. The ROVs also help to maximize the search effort, expanding time underwater and allowing the search to continue without interruption.
Using the REVOLUTION NAV package equipped with USBL and DVL, teams can plot their course and verify what areas have been previously searched for points of interest. Location tracking and breadcrumbing capabilities allow crews to record notes, photos and videos at waypoints for further analysis and record keeping. Furthermore, overlaid maps and station holding make real time positioning and navigation even easier for searching in large areas.
We cannot send divers down unless we are very sure the target will provide information because of the risk involved for the divers and boat operators. With these cameras we would be able to be 100% sure that the subject is there or not and know we have covered 100% of the bottom. The ability to record this info is huge for searchers for situational awareness and historical data for reviewing and training purposes.
