About

Meet Druiser, the world's smallest remote operated wireless underwater drone designed for consumer recreational use.

Druiser creates a thrilling and seamless experience for enthusiasts and hobbyists alike, providing an immersive first person view experience through its integrated wireless HD camera module.

Druiser's hull** will be constructed out of optical grade polycarbonate to allow for high visual clarity for the HD camera embedded within the hull body, while ensuring extremely high levels of strength and durability to the hull structure. 

**The current image is a prototype made from 3D printed materials for testing and evaluation of technical specifications.

The lightweight polycarbonate construction also ensures that Drusier maintains a very high power to weight ratio to glide through and under the water surface with ease. The underwater hull geometry has also been engineered to exacting precision ensuring directional stability while maintaining high levels of manoeuvrability.

With Druiser, we’re designing a user-friendly underwater drone that gives users' unprecedented capabilities that were previously only possible with commercial AUVs (Autonomous Underwater Vehicles). We have taken the same technology and "miniaturised" it into Druiser to allow for recreational use.

Druiser possesses a unique propulsion mechanism coupled with a aerodynamic hull design that is specifically developed to reduce water drag coefficient. This design based on a manta ray allows Drusier to manoeuvre quickly and efficiently. It is capable of diving to a depth of 10 meters in a matter of seconds and has a horizontal range of 30 meters. Not only can it stay submerged for up to 30 minutes, the HD camera also allows users to live stream their dive in real-time.

Risks and challenges

Traditional underwater drones are not affordable, bulky and inaccessible to the masses. Our new product development has passed through a series of stages from idea generation through to design and building the prototype.

We have assembled a team of engineers and maritime enthusiasts with the skill sets to turn our idea into a reality. Building this revolutionary product may have its challenges and hurdles to overcome, however we are on track to eliminating limitations and restrictions that has traditionally hampered the development of an affordable underwater drone that can be used for recreational purposes.
