Aquabotix SwarmDiver overview

The Aquabotix SwarmDiver is a small underwater swarm drone, made by Aquabotix, a manufacturer from the US.

The SwarmDiver is a portable and autonomous underwater drone primarily aimed for military purposes, environmental monitoring, and research. This drone is also considered to be a hybrid unmanned surface vehicle (USV) and unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV).

These swarm drones are about 75 cm in length, weigh 1.7 kg and reach depths of 50 m. In addition, the SwarmDiver can reach speeds of about 8 km/h thanks to two brushless DC motors.

Interestingly, the drone can only transmit data once it has resurfaced. One drone pilot is able to operate a number of SwarmDivers simultaneously.
