Deep Trekker’s mission is simple: they want to give anyone on the earth an opportunity to explore the depths of the vast oceans, seas, lakes, or rivers with an ROV.
The DeepTrekker range of small but powerful ROV’s have been designed with the mission in mind, and incorporate several unique features that not only make the vehicles perform better but more reliable, lighter, 4mm diameter, low drag tether, and simpler to operate. On board batteries, negate the need for a bulky surface power supply, and a patented pitching system, means only two thrusters are required. The Vehicles provide users with a choice of features and accessories to accommodate multiple missions.
