Deep Trekker, a developer of harsh environment robotic inspection tools, has announced the launch of its latest line of remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) at the AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2019 tradeshow.
The new Revolution ROV is engineered with carbon fiber and stainless steel, and is equipped with auto-stabilization, wireless connectivity, augmented recording capabilities and 4K Ultra HD video resolution.
Revolution is based on an automated station holding platform, allowing the camera, sonar and manipulator arm to rotate a full 260 degrees for advanced situational awareness and unmatched flexibility. It can be remotely controlled to depths of 305 meters underwater. The vehicle’s manipulator arm has a close strength of 70 lbs and the ROV tether can pull up to 300 lbs to the surface.
Revolution is designed to detect explosive devices, locate contraband hidden beneath the water, assist divers, investigate mine-like objects and safely conduct underwater inspections in currents of up to 3.5 knots.
Powered by Deep Trekker’s BRIDGE hardware-software integration, Revolution provides advanced stability in underwater environments.
