Underwater Surveillance Camera - The New DTPod

Brendan Cook   |   June 29, 2017

Deep Trekker is excited to announce the launch of our newest product line - the new underwater surveillance camera, the DTPod. For Monitoring submerged aquaculture infrastructure and stock.

Today, we at Deep Trekker are pleased to announce our newest product line, the DTPod.

This submersible surveillance camera is designed for both drop camera inspections and permanent installations, providing instant video to the surface from underwater. Our DTG2 and DTX2 underwater drones (Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) are operating in more than 80 countries globally and are becoming the “go to” tool for a multitude of underwater industries.

Product Innovation

With an innovation award from the North American Society for Trenchless Technology for the DT340 pipe crawler, the recent release of a 4K camera upgrade to the DTG2 and DTX2 ROVs, and the launch of the uniquely designed magnetic DT640 Utility Crawler, 2017 has been an incredible year thus far.

The New DTPod Surveillance Camera

The design principals are based on the same favorite features of other Deep Trekker products; portability, durability, ease of use, and low cost of ownership. The DTPod is designed to be installed as a permanent fixture or used as a drop camera.

The DTPod is designed to be installed as a permanent fixture or used as a drop camera. The handheld controller is able to relay real-time visuals and data to the surface by simply plugging in the controller topside and having the 360 pan and tilt camera ready to inspect submerged infrastructure, fish health or feeding. Using a single splash proof controller allows access to an entire fleet of installed cameras without having to maneuver large, bulky equipment or risk a laptop near water.

Surveillance Camera for Aquaculture Sites

Deep Trekker is no stranger to Aquaculture operations, the DTG2 ROV is the defacto-standard among aquaculture farm sites.

An example is a global leader in Aquaculture, Marine Harvest, "We have been using DTG2 smart unit for more than a year now in our aquaculture operations. It worked really well for us. It took away a lot of costly dive time. This was the low cost, portable and easy to operate machine at the time we bought. I believe, it still is. The best things about this purchasing this machine is, ease of operation, very cooperative sales team and best after-sale support and service. Very low down time observed with the machine too as most of minor repairs can be done on-site", said Jayaprabandh Pudota, Harmful Plankton Monitor/Technician

The DTPod allows fish farmers to have easy, instant access to their nets, moorings and fish feeding and behavior. Likewise, the DTPod can also be utilized as a convenient option for structural inspections, such as potable water tanks or bridges.

DTPod Design

The DTPod is built with rugged 316 stainless steel to withstand long installations, even at great depths (depth rating options of 300m (1000ft). Additional options include zoom camera upgrades, wipers, and thrusters when working in high current areas. Equipped with a low-light HD camera and powerful LED floodlights, the camera delivers high-quality imagery, making it the perfect addition to underwater ROVs.

The DTPod design came as a response to the growing demand of aquaculture operations to have a permanent installation to quickly access to view specific areas of a site. This addition provides an ideal complement to the DTG2 and DTX2 “free swimming drones”, by providing a constant view of a specific area, while the ROVs are maneuvered to inspect nets and other areas of interest.
