OUR STORY  arrow pointing beside Our Story

We set out to make the smallest, all-electric underwater actuators available in the world and succeeded. 

This filled a capability gap for users of portable Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) and enabled subsea tasks previously reserved for larger underwater vehicles.

Our customers include military organisations, service providers for the oil and gas industry conducting pipe and tank inspections, and scientists wanting to further their research in underwater robotics and marine biology.

Integrated and Proven
on leading Remotely
Operated Vehicles

To date, we’ve worked with vehicle manufacturers, service providers, and other ROV operators to integrate, test, and deploy our underwater robotics into the field.

With 1000+ hours of operational time, our products are proven to live up to the toughness, reliability, and usability required for underwater inspection and intervention in complex environments.

Vehicle integrations to date include: SRS Fusion, Teledyne Seabotix vLBV300, VideoRay Pro4, Pro5, MSS Defender, BlueRobotics BlueROVs (and Heavy Configuration), Oceanbotics SRV-8, and many more custom applications.

Customers say

“Have had the pleasure of using the Blueprint Lab 5 function arm coupled with master arm controller for a number of days on a deep water project and it is a great piece of equipment, just like having your hands down there on the ROV. Has made it easy to achieve the results we were after”.
