About
We're making underwater exploration accessible through an affordable, easy to use, underwater drone.

Industry
Landscape

Fathom's initial target market is the boating and fishing industry. Boaters are currently spending $5.6 billion annually on aftermarket boating accessories. Our customers are normally looking for another item for their boat, or a better fish finder.

The
Problem

As humans, we have a natural desire to be curious and explore. Yet there's no easy way to explore the majority of our planet, underwater. Whether that is a backyard lake, a shipwreck, or a coral reef, reaching these areas currently takes a great amount of resources and time.

The
Solution

The Fathom One enables anyone who knows how to use a smartphone to explore underwater while staying dry. It features patent-pending modularity, familiar, video game-like controls, and weighs only 4.5 lbs. All of this, for under $600.
