Remotely Operated Vehicles Making Underwater Tasks More Efficient

Updated: Jan 28, 2023

With the advancement of technology, mini underwater drones have now transitioned. Previously only available as observation class, these smaller ROVs have now become highly capable, multi-tooled, sensor bearing utility vehicles. Similar to a tractor or combine harvester changing equipment through the season, our ROVs can easily change tools, sensors, cameras, or lights, to make them fit for almost any purpose that the underwater work demands at the time.



Before the advent of ROVs, underwater tasks were limited by the following:

  • Depths that divers could dive to - beyond 50 metres nitrogen narcosis is a concern

  • Times that divers could work in the water - usually between 1 and 2 hours

  • Jobs that divers could perform - additional expense of training for specific tasks

  • Equipment and tools that the diver could manage underwater at one time

  • Weather and environmental conditions prohibiting diving - sharks/ too dark

  • Quality of Imaging- particularly of inspection video being “shaky”

  • Type of information that could be collected

  • Expense of either hiring divers, or having diver(s) on your staff.


Depending on the ROV chosen from Down Deep Drones you could:

  • Perform tasks up to 500 metres depth (1600 feet)

  • Operate to the battery duration time of up to 6 hours or beyond

  • ROV piloted by engineers/trained experts or anyone with gaming experience

  • Attach multiple sensors, cameras, tools

  • Operate in dark/ murky/ dangerous conditions

  • Have steady and clear video imaging

  • More information gathered with geo-tagging, sonar, liDar, sensor readings

  • One off cost- with very little on going costs, and easy upgrades.
