Deep Trekker’s DTG2 and DTX2 underwater drones (Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) are operating in more than 80 countries globally; their flagship products becoming the “go to” tool for a multitude of underwater industries.

With an innovation award from the North American Society for Trenchless Technology, the recent release of a 4K-camera upgrade to the DTG2 and DTX2 ROVs, and the launch of the uniquely designed magnetic DT640 Utility Crawler, 2017 has been an incredible year thus far.

In keeping with the forward momentum driven by listening to customer feedback and a desire to continue to implement innovative technology, Deep Trekker is pleased to introduce the DTPod. It is designed to be installed as a permanent fixture, or used as a drop camera.

The handheld controller is able to relay real time visuals and data to the surface by simply plugging in the controller topside and having the 360 pan and tilt camera go to work. The same splash proof controller can allow access to an entire fleet of installed cameras without having to maneuver large, bulky equipment or risk a laptop near water.

The DTPod will allow fish farmers to have easy access to their nets, moorings and fish behaviour. Likewise, the DTPod can also be utilised as a convenient option for structural inspections, such as tanks or bridges.

The design principals are based on the same favourite features of other Deep Trekker products; portability, durability, ease of use, and low cost of ownership. The DTPod is built with rugged 316 stainless steel to withstand long installations, even at great depths (depth rating options of 300m (1000ft).

Additional options include zoom camera upgrades, wipers and thrusters when working in high current areas. Equipped with a low light HD camera and powerful LED floodlights, the camera delivers high quality imagery, making it the perfect addition to underwater ROVs.
