Deep Trekker Nuclear inspection robotics

Underwater ROVs provide diver safety and prevent them from accessing hazardous and inaccessible underwater environments. Some inspections can be conducted during normal operating times, but other inspections are done during outages, which are small windows of time where getting the job done right is crucial and the cost of not achieving the goal is extremely high. It is important to have reliable and proven equipment for these applications.
