Deep Trekker Visit Website

Deep Trekker is a leading manufacturer of advanced remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) for demanding commercial, industrial and environmental missions. Our durable underwater robotics systems are ideal for a wide range of offshore and underwater inspection applications, including aquaculture, energy, search & rescue, defense, and ocean and environmental science.

DTG3 Remotely Operated Vehicle

Intelligent commercial-grade underwater ROV rated to 200m

Underwater ROV Deep-Trekker

The 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.

DTG3 underwater robot

Powered by our 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.

A weatherproof, easy-to-use handheld controller with 7-inch screen directly receives and records live 4K UHD video from the ROV’s internal low-latency camera, which rotates through 270 degrees for maximum situational awareness. With simultaneous viewing of sonar data, GPS and video, the controller provides a clear, convenient view of underwater inspection missions.

The DTG3 is constructed with 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:

DTG3 Starter underwater ROV

DTG3 Starter – everything you need to get started with underwater inspection, including the ROV, handheld controller and 50m tether

REVOLUTION Remotely Operated Vehicle

Advanced underwater ROV rated to 305m

Revolution underwater ROV

The 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 ROV 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 Remotely Operated Vehicle

Powered by our proprietary BRIDGE technology, 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.

A weatherproof, easy-to-use handheld controller with 7-inch screen directly receives and records live 4K UHD video from the ROV’s internal low-latency camera. With simultaneous viewing of sonar data, GPS and video, the controller provides a clear, convenient view of underwater inspection missions with no need for additional control consoles.

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.

BRIDGE Underwater Robot Technology

Advanced ROV robot technology for intelligent integration

Our advanced underwater ROVs are powered by BRIDGE technology, a proprietary hardware and software suite that leverages multi-core processing to provide a set of high-tech features seamlessly across all our robotic platforms.

BRIDGE provides intelligent integration of a range of sensors and payloads such as Tritech sonars and underwater GPS, with the flexibility and scope for future third-party products. State-of-the-art algorithms provide seamless response between controller and ROV robot, allowing operation from anywhere in the world. Multiple Deep Trekker vehicles can be operated via the DTHub network.

With superior viewing and recording capabilities, the BRIDGE platform allows underwater ROVs to deliver stable, clear 4K HD video over greater tether distances. Onboard vehicle lighting can be easily adjusted to provide the best possible picture in low-light and dark inspection conditions.
