Be Confident. The Reach 7 is a subsea electric 7-Function robotic manipulator that opens up a new set of compact inspection and manipulation opportunities for your ROV or autonomous underwater vehicle.

Reach 7 Robotic Manipulator from Bueprint Lab

Designed to conduct Inspection, Maintenance, and Repair (IMR) tasks usually reserved for human divers, this seven-function robotic manipulator is compact, lightweight, smart and tough. Its form factor was designed for industry leading inspection-class ROV operators making it a ready-to-go option for existing fleets.


The Reach 7 enables complex inspection tasks, underwater valve manipulation, and Special Recovery Operations. With a large operating envelope and master arm controller, this underwater manipulator provides a previously unavailable capability multiplier to ROV operators.

Underwater, land, air, nuclear – the Reach System is environment agnostic.


  • Ready-built and designed for industry leading inspection-class ROVs and autonomous vehicles
  • Master Arm Controlled
  • Electric, Zero Oil
  • Highly Modular and Configurable; 1 to 7-function versions available
  • End-effector tool interchangeable (grabbers, probes, cutters)

Lowering costs and expanding capabilities for the offshore oil and gas community.

Offshore Oil and Gas Applications:

  • Complex inspection of pipes and welds with NDT probes (CP, UT etc)
  • Valve and other manifold manipulation
  • Object placement and recovery 
  • Close Visual Inspection (CVI) of infrastructure

Reducing risk and increasing Rate of Effort (ROE) for the Mine Clearance Diver and EOD community.

Military Applications:

  • Underwater Special Recovery Operations (SRO)
  • Counter Improvised Explosive Device (C-IED) Operations
  • Navy Search and Rescue Operations
  • Downed aircraft, AUV, and other object recovery
  • Carabiner and magnetic attachments
