I see lots of different makes use of for a drone just like this, marine conservation, treasure hunting, exploring shipwrecks and caves, or just recording for fun.

We also think there may be lots of makes use of for underwater drones just like the Trident that we simply have not thought of yet, inspecting underwater water lines, gas pipes, bridges, provides hiding for, ferries, and much more.

A very getting out of new technology that produces an opportunity to movie areas underwater, and discover underwater in a way that in typically the past was reserved by very expensive vehicles, like 1 man submarines etc.
