OCEANOGRAPHY

Our small, smart robotic arms are increasing the opportunities of oceanography research by expanding the exploration capabilities of marine biologists, subsea explorers, and diving enthusiasts. The adjustable grip force feature of our manipulators and interchangeable end effectors offers dynamic possibility – pick up a sea urchin or cut a cable!  Providing a previously unavailable level of dexterity and ability to reach into small areas, the Reach System provides a capability multiplier ready to go on existing Remote Operating Vehicles.

USE CASES IN OCEANOGRAPHY

  • Collection of coral samples and sediment from the ocean bed.
  • Delicate organism investigation with gentle handling.
  • Selective sterilisation of Crown-of-Thorns Starfish and other pests.
  • Recovery of objects, debris and ocean junk.

BENEFITS FOR RESEARCH AND EXPLORATION

  • High-usability and intuitive control.  Cut your operator training to a minimum.
  • Active compliance on rotate and end-effector joints provide protection against overload and collision.
  • High-Clamping Force.  Grab with confidence.
  • High dexterity manipulation.  Multiply your capability beyond a standard grabber to reach complex locations.
