Deep Trekker Revolution Vectored Trust ROV

The DTX3 is the latest evolution of the industry leading Deep Trekker range of advanced ROVs. The DTX-2 was the first ever subsea vehicle to combine the patented pitch mechanism that Deep Trekker is known for. The DTX3 now has 6 powerful, vectored and vertical thrusters for maneuverability unmatched in this vehicle class.

Deep Trekker DTG640 Utility Crawler

The DT640 Utility Crawler is the most versatile inspection vehicle of its kind. The sleek, three-wheel submersible comes with a magnetic option, creating the ideal vehicle for an array of underwater work.

Deep Trekker DT-POD Drop Camera

The DTPod design came as a response to the growing demand of aquaculture operations to have a permanent installation to quickly access to view specific areas of a site. This addition provides an ideal complement to the DTG2 and DTX2 “free swimming drones”, by providing a constant view of a specific area, while the ROVs are maneuvered to inspect nets and other areas of interest. A variety of configurations are available, and all have 360 degree pan and tilt.

Diveable control system

The underwater diveable control system integrates seamlessly with the Deep Trekker ROV’s. The controller is rated to 75 M and can be equipped with up to 150 M of tether. This 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 dive 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.

Deep Trekker Auxiliary Lights

Deep Trekker now offers external LED lighting in addition to the internal LED flood light that tracks with the camera. This provides a total of 900 Lumens.

Deep Trekker Laser Scaler

When understanding the size of objects or specimens is critical to your task, the Deep Trekker Laser Scaler is an ideal tool. Perfect for the aquaculture industry to track fish sizes, the Laser Scaler sends our two laser beams 25 mm apart from above the camera.

Deep Trekker Thickness Gauge

Deep Trekker has now the integrated the Cygnus Multiple Echo Ultrasonic Digital Thickness Gauge with the DTG2 ROV. This industry leading thickness gauge has been specifically designed to integrate seamlessly with the Deep Trekker DTG2 ROV, making it easier the determine the metal thickness of a tanks, hulls, or corrosion without removing protective coatings.

Deep Trekker Tritech Micron Sonar

Introducing in addition to the high definition camera on the DTG2 ROV, Deep Trekker has integrated sonar technology using the Tritech Micron Sonar. This innovation in design brings new capabilities to the Deep Trekker by providing obstacle avoidance and target recognition.

Deep Trekker MicronNav USBL Position System

Deep Trekker has now integrated the TriTech MicronNav USBL Position System to intuitively track and position your Deep Trekker ROV when it is underwater. Understanding where the Deep Trekker Remotely Operated Vehicle is when it disappears into the water is one of the most challenging part of piloting an ROV, with this solution you can easily track where the ROV has gone and where it is.

Deep Trekker Sediment Sampler

Do more with the DTG2 Worker model by transforming the grabber arm to also collect samples. This add-on to the grabber arm is excellent for environmental or research settings where samples of shorelines or marine vegetation are required.

Deep Trekker Water Sampler

Gather water samplers with this attachment for the Deep Trekker grabber arm. This specially designed water samplers takes in up to 100CC. Using the same controls as the grabber arm, easily open the syringe style sampler to take in water, using the sensor system, your depth and heading where the sample was taken can be recorded.

Deep Trekker Cutter Attached

The Deep Trekker mini ROV can now complete even more work without diver intervention. The newly introduced cutter attachment can be added to any Deep Trekker DTG2 Worker ROV to cut snagged line, rope or netting under the water.

Deep Trekker Crawler Wheels

Maneuvering within tight space or along sediment is now made easier with the Deep Trekker Crawler Wheels. Ideal for tracking across the hull of a boat or pipe, the Crawler Wheels can be attached the the DTG2 ROV on the top, bottom or both based on your preference. The accessory is a great tool to have available for when a specific job arises, the crawler wheels can be attached or removed at any time in field.

Deep Trekker GoPro Mount

Love your GoPro? You can easily mount your it to your DTG2 ROV to instantly record video or take pictures as you explore the underwater world. Please be mindful of the depth restrictions of your GoPro, as the Deep Trekker ROV is depth rated to much more.

Deep Trekker Digital Video Glasses

This sunglass-style eyewear, with a virtual screen displays crystal clear images from the boat, dock, or rig. The best way to view the underwater video from your Deep Trekker ROV, the eyewear connects to all NTSC or PAL audio/video devices with video-out capabilities and composite video connections.

dotOcean Nautical Innovations

dotOcean stands for the connection between the internet and the offshore industry.

The company provides sophisticated automated tools for support of dredge operations, both pre- during and post.

They offer three main instruments for assessing sediment density, shear strength, fluid mud and consolidated mud boundaries, navigable channel and hard bottom detection.

Autonomous Survey Platform (ASP) Calypso

The Autonomous Survey Platform (ASP) Calypso is an inflatable, remote controlled drone that can carry a wide range of sensors for hydrographic and environmental surveys. The ASP is easy to transport and can be installed and operated by one person. Only a Peli Case and a backpack are required for transport.

Graviprobe free fall penetrometer

The GraviProbe is a free fall impact instrument, analyzing the underwater sediment layers during intrusion. Under its own weight it accelerates and penetrates fluid and consolidated mud layers. The geotechnical and density conditions of the soil layers are determining the probe’s dynamical behavior.

Deep Sea free fall graviprobe penetrometer

Developed to capture high quality geotechnical profiles of fluid and consolidated mud layers at maximum depths of 5500 meter. The Deep Sea GraviProbe is a geotechnical profiling system for deep sea waters.

DensX sediment density profiler

The DensX is a high accurate in situ mud density measurement system. It measures mud densities between 1.0 T/m³ and 1.5 T/m³ with an accuracy of 0.25 %. The technology is based on X-ray and is a direct measurement method. With a sampling speed of 10 Hz the system supports fast profiling.

iCone

dotOcean is currently developing an intelligent sounding pole (NL: “intelligente peilstok”). With this manual mud or sediment profiler it is possible to analyze underwater soil layers in small waterways and rivers by manually pushing the instrument in the soil.

Radar network for perimeter surveillance

Wind farm and offshore installations are critical and valuable assets at sea. Operators and contractors want to have a continues view on all ship movements in the area of the asset. The main reason is safety and operational management. To protect subsea cables, foundations, piles and installations, access to the park for unauthorized vessels is prohibited or limited.
