- State-of-the-art motors and drive components produce impressive thrust
- Innovative propeller design increases life cycle of the system and reduces servicing intervals
- Seamless controller interface
- Option to pre-plan system settings
- Durable and lightweight
- Corrosive resistant
- Streamlined underwater profile
- Use in a variety of applications
- Developed with technology exclusive and unique to Northern Diver
Through the application of hydrodynamics and intensive university research, Northern Diver have maximised the efficiency and power of the DT4 Thrusters to reach their full potential. We are constantly working to ensure the user’s kit will provide the best streamlined profile underwater, to reduce drag and increase the speed of our DT4 Dive Thrusters.
The development of a sleek battery cover and ensuring the battery housing harness remains as low profile as possible, will further enhance performance.
The various user groups applications have been considered when designing and
configuring the thrusters harness systems. The equipment has been refined for seamless integration with the user’s standard kit. The thrusters include two choices of harness and belt for wearing the kit, that is
- Tactical harness improves comfort, practicality, and usability, the controller can be configured to right or left.
- A tactical lightweight belt with removable shoulder straps to further improve integration with fully kitted operators.
The tactical harness is available in S/M and L/XL sizes and the tactical belt is available in one adjustable size to cater to a wide range of combat swimmers body types. In both configurations the battery pack is protected and securely housed against the swimmer’s lower back. Both systems feature quick release buckles which allow the battery pack to be changed under water. They also have a MOLLE System for storage.
NIMROD - REMOTE CONTROL
In addition to the manual control provided, the DT4 Thrusters have the capability to be remotely operated with Northern Diver’s NIMROD underwater navigation system.
This enables the user to alter their speed without removing his hand from the navigation equipment giving complete control, whilst maintaining a smooth underwater profile. NIMROD console with DVL makes your mission fully covert.
