Reach Robotics has attended Australia’s largest defence industry exposition on the 4-6th October at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre. The expo featured 810 participating exhibitor companies. Reach Robotics was proud to exhibit as an NSW state representative, contributing to the global defence technology landscape.

On show at the exhibit were our latest Master Pilot controllers. These innovative new systems mimic the operators’ movements for the most intuitive manipulator control yet. See the clip below of these controllers in use at the exhibition.

“Land Forces was a great opportunity for Reach Robotics to broaden its scope in the Land based Military sector. We received resoundingly positive feedback around our new Master Pilot Controllers and Dual Reach Bravo 7 setup. On a personal note, it was great to see stellar exhibits by other Australian companies such as BIA5 and ECLIPS.”

James Spinks, Sales Manager

The exposition also features visits from prominent members of the defence community. This included the Chief of Army, Lieutenant General Simon Stuart and Australia’s Assistant Minister for Defence, the Hon. Matt Thistlethwaite MP.

“Events such as Land Forces are such important opportunities to organise around, to come together and focus our attention on how we can collectively meet the challenges of today and tomorrow. Many of the companies attending Land Forces are working in partnership with Defence, through the Innovation Hub, to develop cutting edge, sovereign defence capabilities”

Chief of Army,  Lieutenant General Simon Stuart, AO, DSC

The exhibition was a great success, and Reach Robotics looks forward to Land Forces 2023.

Command Pods

Command Pods are a pair of space mouse controllers comprising of left and right units. They are designed to attach to an ROV control tablet and allow full system control from one interface. The Command Pod configuration simplifies control of a dual-manipulator system as operators are able to intuitively control both arms, while still piloting the vehicle.
The joystick model allows for arms to be directed towards a target while the system automatically maps the arms configuration along that path.


Compatible with all Reach Robotics manipulators, the Master Arm controller is available in five and seven-function models to mimic your robotic arm. Achieve unparalleled precision and accuracy while undertaking complex tasks including:
  • Precise placement of probes for crack and corrosion monitoring.
  • Place and recover objects with unmatched dexterity and minimised
  • Attach hooks and shackles consistently.
  • Reach confined areas unreachable with lower degree-of-freedom manipulators
    and traditional control methods.
