Small, Portable Remotely Operated Vehicles Make Underwater Exploration Simple

With the advent of a small, portable remotely operated vehicle, or ROV, many more individuals and small companies can afford them. This affordable ROV is easy to operate, yet does not sacrifice quality or capability. Exploring the oceans, lakes, and seas of the world just got a lot easier and safer. Treasure hunters can use this tool to save human time underwater, and companies with underwater equipment and pipelines just got a more convenient way to inspect them. The smaller, more portable ROVs have many uses and advantages in underwater settings around the world.

Just what individuals and industries will use these ROVs? Companies dealing with aquaculture, infrastructure, oil and energy, underwater discovery, marine surveying, shipping, commercial salvage, and underwater observation will benefit from the use of ROVs. The military and first responders can also benefit from the use of portable ROVs. These small, efficient ROVs will work well to view submerged assets, monitor wildlife, gather evidence after underwater accidents, exploring underwater, treasure hunt, and more. More and more uses are being found for these portable, easy to use remotely operated vehicles.

Some of the advantages and selling points for these small machines can easily be listed. The company that makes them is Deep Trekker, and their stated mission is to make it easier for more people to explore under water with remotely operated vehicles. To do this, they simplified the design to make it more affordable and easier to operate. The controls are patterned after those used in gaming to be simple to operate when piloting the ROV. The controller is lightweight with a well lit 5.75-inch screen that shows video and an information overlay. Customers can get another control box that has PC capability for sonar, USBL, and other sensors. These small, portable ROVs have 360-degree viewing with a 270-degree camera sweep lit with LED lighting. They are powered by long-lasting 19.2V batteries, have a patented pitching system, and vectored thrusters. These small, economical ROVs have strong, small diameter tethers for easier maneuverability. All of this would be wasted if the ROVs were not made of durable, corrosion resistant materials. These units are made to last with a spherical design for strength and sturdy cast aluminum construction, coated with epoxy.

These small, portable ROV's go underwater to inspect the area for safety before a human diver enters the water. This underwater drones for the oil industry adds to the safety factor for divers. The ROV operator sits safely on the boat remotely guiding the ROV in the water, seeing everything the ROV sees and recording it to view as needed. ROVs can be used in small, unstable areas that might not be safe for human divers. They can also be used to ascertain the safety of an area for diving. In treasure hunting, the ROV can be used to survey an area, looking for treasure before the diver goes down. To get more information on ROVs, go to the website .
