Diveable Control System for Underwater ROV

Amanda Coulas   |   September 17, 2015

The new diveable control system allows commercial and military divers the ability to swim with their underwater drone or Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV).

September 16, 2015. Excel, London. Today Deep Trekker Inc. released their new military underwater diveable control system at the Defense & Security Equipment International (DSEI) event.

The underwater diveable control system integrates seamlessly with the Deep Trekker Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV). The controller is depth rated to 75 M (250 ft) and can be equipped with up to 150 M (500 ft) of tether.

This advancement in underwater technology will increase the safety of military and stealth dive missions as well as give divers the ability to investigate areas too dangerous or remote for them to access. The underwater control system provides the same easy to use controls for the Deep Trekker ROVs, while providing an integrated super-bright screen for viewing what the ROV camera sees, all while underwater.

Never before has there been a remote inspection tool that can be controlled and operated while completing a dive. Inspection missions or unknown territories can first be investigated by the Deep Trekker remotely operated vehicle while the diver remains a safe distance away.

"This is all possible through the unique Deep Trekker remotely operated vehicles design," stated Sam Macdonald, Deep Trekker President. "With on-board batteries our ROVs do not require generators or topside power, meaning the unit is completely self-contained."

This completely portable underwater system from Deep Trekker enhances their line of products to include a solution to support divers throughout their missions and reduce their dive times.

"We have received tremendous interest at DSEI this year," commented Macdonald. "This has been something that the military has been asking for and DSEI has been a great event to launch this new innovation."

The Deep Trekker team will be with their UK resellers, Planet Ocean to showcase the new 'diveable controller' at stand N3-275. Anyone not able to attend is invited to contact Deep Trekker for more information.
