ABOUT SEADRONE

SeaDrone is transforming the subsea inspection experience using affordable and reliable robotic hardware piloted by purpose-built mobile software.

Our underwater vehicles are designed to be launched and mastered in minutes while equipped to tackle diverse missions and environments.

Because our customers are focused on running with purpose every day, we design vehicles that help our customers go faster and farther while pushing the limits of their day and equipment.
