Products & Services
Dive Technologies’ AUV architecture promotes simple integration of industry leading and next generation energy, communications, navigation, and payload technologies. Rapid adaptations to our core vehicle platform showcase unmatched versatility and efficiency while remaining steadfast on uncompromised reliability and affordability. Architected to support long duration missions at full ocean depth, Dive Technologies AUVs are the answer to boundless ocean exploration.
The DIVE-LD vehicle is designed around reducing total cost of ownership in offshore operations. Long endurance, cutting-edge advanced autonomy, generous payload accommodations, and a small footprint of topside systems result in faster and safer data collection.
The DIVE-LD includes survey configurations for Multibeam Echosounder (MBES), Side Scan Sonar (SSS), Synthetic Aperture Sonar (SAS), Sub-Bottom Profiler (SBP), magnetomer, cameras, and others.

The driving technology behind the DIVE-LD is the Dive Technologies AUV-Kit. The AUV-Kit is comprised of core, proven subsystems for autonomy, propulsion, control, energy, communications, navigation, and mission safety. Rapid reconfiguring and scaling of these systems results in the right vehicle for the mission every time.
Combining the AUV-Kit with Dive Technologies’ proprietary hull and structure manufacturing processes leads to a different size and shape vehicle to satisfy a unique job, application, or mission, once the AUV-Kit is owned. Our process utilizes Large Format Additive Manufacturing (LFAM) techniques that bring complex designs to physical robust hull forms in less that 48 hours for an entire vehicle. Producing your next custom AUV can be accomplished in under 4 weeks with the AUV-Kit.
With a unique approach to serving our customer needs, Dive Technologies offers a Robot-as-a-Service (RaaS) model with day, month, and annual lease rates available to accommodate your data collection and technology demonstration needs.
Utilizing our standard survey sensor packages, or your custom payload configurations, the DIVE-LD is capable of industry leading seafloor survey coverage.
Well-suited for Inspection, Maintenance, and Repair (IMR) missions, the DIVE-LD is capable of pipe-line and cable-route surveys of over 500 km per dive.
Enormous payload bays, open interfaces, and backseat autonomy control allow for rapid integration and demonstration of today’s state-of-the-art sensors and your future subsea technologies.
