Fifish V6 Underwater Drone For Survey Work  

With advanced training and understanding using the Fifish V6 Underwater Drone, the Kerry Aqua Terra team can help you, and your underwater tasks/surveys are performed easier and, most of all, cost-effective.

Under the current circumstances, it may not be possible to assemble teams to conduct survey dives, marine research or ships inspections. Still, we at Kerry Aqua Terra can save you the hassle by using our new survey equipment that can be streamed live worldwide. The V6 drone has a dive time of up to 4hrs and can be deployed from shore or a support vessel reaching depths of up to 110m (328 ft).
Our equipment is suitable for: –

  • Vessel Propellers, Thrusters & Stabilisers Survey
  • Navigation Aids, Pipeline & Power Cable Survey
  • Fish Farm Survey
  • Diver Support
  • Search & Rescue tasks
  • Marine Research
  • Construction Projects
  • Infrastructure Inspections
  • Film, Television or Documentary

With 6 thrusters, our equipment can move sideways, forward, backward, up, down, roll, pan and tilt. In addition, with combined movements such as bow, dive nose or spiral, the survey can be completed with rotational stability while performing 360-degree spin. In low visibility or even at night, our powerful lighting system of 4000 lumens will capture exceptional 4K quality with 30 frames per second. This equipment will assist your survey with impressive picture resolution to achieve great slow motion and viewing onsite or live streaming to external sources.
