FDSE (Fluid Dynamics Search Engine) is 'search your site' software which also includes option to search the internet if the user doesn't find what they're looking for at that website.

It's also been spotted on theses IPs so it's a very busy bot as those are all over the world.

As well as being used for site search, the operator can also specify it to crawl an external page or site. Perhaps this is why it is hitting your logs.
