Nothing says ' portable ROV ' like the Deep Trekker Diveable Controller. Without the need for cumbersome generators or topside power sources, Deep Trekker Remotely Operated Vehicles, DTG2 & DTX2, are the ideal suitors for the diveable controller.
However, we are often asked, if deploying a portable underwater drone, why is there a need for a diver to operate one below the surface? The answer is quite simple; ROVs and divers are not mutually exclusive. Portable ROV solutions are used globally to ensure that human divers are not placed in dangerous situations; providing divers an extra tool on their belt to put between them and harm's way.
Globally, governing parties are in constant combat with counter-drug conflicts and operate counter-terrorism measures to uphold the safety of the public.
At times these operations place military divers in unfamiliar and often threatening conditions. Here are the top five ways where equipping the diver with the portable ROV and the Diveable Controller greatly improves diver safety and inspection:
Military divers are deployed to conduct routine inspections of the vessels for the explosives. Once they are located, the diver must assess the type of explosive and then disarm it.
With the use of the portable controller, the diver is able to perform the hull inspections using the Remotely Operated Vehicle. If a limpet mine is detected, the diver is able to examine the device prior to swimming toward it and removing the explosive.
Once an area of interest is determined, divers are sent to assess whether it is an explosive or not. If it is proven to be a mine, the diver must disarm and dispose of the danger. The portable ROV equipped with the divable controller offers an extra level of security to the human diver. They are able to send to underwater drone ahead of themselves to evaluate the unknown situation before putting their life at risk.
Moreover, the Diveable Controller has proven to be the ideal solution to keeping military divers safe by putting an underwater robot between them and harm's way.
