Deep Trekker Inc. released their new military underwater diveable control system at the Defence & Security Equipment International (DSEI) event.
The underwater diveable control system integrates seamlessly with the Deep Trekker remotely operate vehicles (ROV). The controller is depth rated to 75 M (250 ft) and can be equipped with up to 150 M 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 surveillance tool that can be controlled and operated while completing a dive. Surveillance 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.”
