DEFENSE

Finally, a dexterous intervention capability at a deployable, expeditionary scale. Combined with our advanced master arm technology and user interface, operators can intuitively conduct complex underwater tasks with minimal training.

WHY BLUEPRINT LAB
MANIPULATORS FOR DEFENSE?

  • Track record of evaluation by Navy stakeholders
  • Vehicle agnostic for quick integration onto existing vehicle fleets
  • Field proven through thousands of operator hours (product depending)
  • Role flexibility – swap mission configurations in minutes
  • Master arm enabled – reduce training and mission time
  • Very small logistics footprint

APPLICATIONS

We’re helping military organisations do more with their underwater robotics and autonomous systems. Blueprint Lab manipulators multiply the capability of existing underwater platforms by enabling:

  • Close Visual Inspection and Intervention of Underwater Improvised Explosive Devices (UIEDs)
  • Place a tool (e.g.magnet, limpet mine neutralization tool (LMNT))
  • Attach/hook a carabiner/recovery cable connector (RCC)
  • Pull and cut a rope, line, and netting

“We have been working this past year with Blueprint Lab and Unmanned Maritime Vehicles Lab at Naval Information Warfare Center (NIWC) Pacific with dual Reach Alpha 5 manipulators on the VideoRay Defender ROV. The ease of integration and straightforward user interface on the Alpha 5 make it an excellent choice for testing and evaluating different tools and tactics as the Navy continues to explore different ways to help ‘take the man out of the minefield’ when it comes to Navy mine countermeasures and other hazardous underwater operations.”
