The company's initial development was the Mini Rover, a low cost remotely operated vehicle. DSSI has since gone on to develop the Mini
Rover MK-2, the Sea Rover, and our current MAX Rover MK-1, MK-2 and MK-3 series of vehicles for oper- ation to 6,000 meters, with a full set of accessories. Ten MAX Rovers have been built. The company's newest design is the Mini MAX Rover. The
Mini MAX is a scaled down version of the MAX Rover, using the same reliable constuction. It is offered as an economical, basic function ROV suit- able for the most rugged work envi- ronments. Special projects have included: technical support for the filming of Titanica, Stephen Low's
IMAX 70 mm big-screen production of the famous shipwreck; the
National Parks Service and National
Geographic Pearl Harbor Project, using a DSSI Mini Rover MK-2 to survey the sunken battleship Arizona and search for a Japanese minisub sunk during the attack Pearl Harbor.
