Deep Trekker, a leading manufacturer of advanced remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) for demanding commercial, industrial and environmental missions, has partnered with Unmanned Systems Technology (“UST”) to demonstrate their expertise in this field. The ‘Silver’ profile highlights how their durable underwater robotics systems can be used for a wide range of offshore and underwater inspection applications, including aquaculture, energy, search & rescue, defense, and ocean and environmental science.

DTG3 underwater robotThe DTG3 is a mini observation-class ROV designed for quick deployment and low-maintenance operation. Fitting completely into just one case, the highly portable system draws all power from internal batteries, which give the DTG3 a mission endurance of up to 8 hours.

Powered by Deep Trekker’s proprietary BRIDGE technology, the DTG3 ROV features automatic stabilisation and station holding, with reliable, intuitive controls that provide the smoothest possible underwater piloting. Extreme manoeuvrability in six directions is provided by rotating the shell and thrusters while the internal frame is kept in place by gravity.

The ROV’s internal low-latency camera rotates through 270 degrees for maximum situational awareness. The vehicle features multiple communications and external ports, and can be fitted with a variety of sensors, manipulators, and sonars to accommodate a wide variety of underwater operations. The DTG3 ROV is available as one of four off-the-shelf packages tailored to a range of requirements.

REVOLUTION Remotely Operated VehicleThe REVOLUTION is a fast, flexible expeditionary ROV that can be deployed within minutes. The unique design features a revolving head that allows operators to rotate the camera, manipulators, and sonar, all while automatically station holding in moving water. The ROV and all components are powered completely by internal batteries, which can be swapped out quickly and easily in the field.

REVOLUTION is capable of optimal maneuverability even in challenging underwater environments. Six robust vectored thrusters provide lateral movement as well as precise forward and backward turning, and the camera, sonar, and manipulator can all rotate through 260 degrees.

The complete standard REVOLUTION package includes the ROV, controller, a two-function grabber arm, a laser scaler and a 300m tether. A wide range of additional payloads and accessories are also available for integration into the REVOLUTION ROV, including multibeam imaging sonars, USBLs, chemical sensors, auxiliary cameras and manipulator arms.
