Reach Robotics conducted successful radiation testing on 17th February 2020 at the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO)

ANSTO is Australia’s centre of expertise on nuclear science and technology. The internationally renowned institute operates to benefit and protect the Australian people and environment, as well as providing cutting edge information, products and services to global audiences. 

Conducting radiation testing on Reach Robotics products is important for validating our solutions in nuclear environments. The successful test results allow Reach Robotics to provide solutions for existing nuclear customers in Europe and the UK, while providing confidence for future nuclear clients. Establishing confidence through testing and evaluation is essential for our customers who require a high level of reliability when conducting nuclear inspection and intervention. Thanks to the expertise of key staff at ANSTO, the radiation test event validated the use of their facilities for testing of Reach Robotics manipulators, providing a path forward for future nuclear testing. We look forward to continuing to develop the most advanced robotic arms for harsh environments, enabling operators to safely conduct remote operations with success.

Thanks again to the team at ANSTO!

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.
