MTR100: Deep Trekker Inc.

Marine Technology Reporter
Deep Trekker produces portable ROVs and pipe crawlers for the subsea inspection landscape, from its flagship product, the DTG2 ROV, to the new DTX2 ROV and DT340 pipe crawler. Deep Trekker ROVs feature a patented pitching system to aid maneuverability. The ROV’s outer shell rotates, granting the main thrusters to rotate a complete 180 degrees, allowing the ROV to drive straight up and down, side to side, forward and backwards using the same thrusters. All ROVs are built with anodized cast aluminum to withstand harsh ocean environments and impacts. The internal camera can rotate from within the ROV for a full 320 degree field of view. The super-bright viewing screen is integrated within the handheld controller to view live what the ROV sees. The DTG2 model can reach depths of 150m and operate in currents of up to 2.5 knots, while the DTX2 is larger with 4 vectored thrusters for improved lateral movement and can reach depths of 305m and operate in currents of up to 3.5 knots.
