Yes, LiPo batteries. The motors are enclosed in the body, and actually work to keep the temperature up in cold water. In warm conditions the aluminum sides act as heat sinks for the motors, keeping things cool when needed.

Rio De Janeiro was a German warship that was sunk by a Polish submarine off the coast of Norway, the day before the Germans invaded Norway

We have been involved in quite a few search missions. Many I can't talk about, but there was one particularly sad story of a boy lost in a river where we cut holes through the ice and used the Deep Trekker to run sweeps under the ice. Though it was published in newspapers, I'm not fond of promoting it as it was a terrible tragedy and not one that should be used for commercial promotion.
