    Discover the range of Reach Alpha manipulators. Designed for complex missions, these robotic arms are available in multiple configurations to meet your specific task requirements.

    Your Eyes, Underwater

    RAC-1000

    The Micro IP Camera allows clear uninhibited vision in harsh environments. With Reach Alpha compatibility and simple integration on various third-party platforms, the Micro IP camera is the perfect companion tool to improve situational awareness, task accuracy and efficiency.

    These tooling options enable operators to quickly configure their grabber or robotic manipulator for the required task.  A rapid swap-out procedure ensures interchangeability on the go.

    “In our search for the perfect subsystems (robotic arms and underwater vehicles), we came across the Alpha 5 arm that has all the characteristics we were looking for: it is small, lightweight and electrically actuated. The Alpha 5 is integrated with ROS and this is an enormous bonus for us, as we can easily integrate it with the other subsystems in the UVMS configuration. The Blueprint Lab team responded to all our questions, they delivered the system without any delays, and they continue to support and answer all our needs after the system has been delivered.”

    CONTROL OPTIONS

    Versatile and Advanced

    Reach Control

    The Reach Control software package provides an intuitive interface between operator and manipulator system. Advanced features including kinematic control and workspace definition enable the conduct of complex tasks in remote hostile environments.

    Reach Control interface

    Master Arm

    The Master Arm controller enables accuracy and precision when completing complex underwater tasks. With one-to-one joint matching and comfortable design. The Master Arm reduces ROV training time and enables dexterous tasks not possible with traditional methods.
