Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) 2023

In the beginning of May, Reach Robotics attended the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) held in Houston, Texas, USA. Dedicated to the advancement of scientific and technological knowledge for offshore resources and related environmental matters, the conference is sponsored by 13 academic, scientific, and professional organisations and societies working collaboratively to develop the technical program.

“OTC was a great opportunity for Reach Robotics to showcase our lineup to the offshore energy community. It was immediately apparent how experienced many attendees were with subsea robotic manipulation and the advantages and challenges involved. It’s always so useful to connect with these folks in person to exchange insight and show off our advancing tech.”
Curtis Opsahl, Reach Robotics U.S. Sales Engineer

Over four days, Reach Robotics showcased our intuitive robotic arms for complex intervention operations in the offshore energy industry. We were able to connect with professionals and organisations part of the global community of offshore resource development, exchanging ideas and technical knowledge related to environmental matters.

“OTC was a great opportunity for Reach Robotics to connect with key industry stakeholders and showcase our advanced technology for the offshore energy industry.”
– Ethan Grenot, Technical Sales Engineer at Reach Robotics

Founded in 1969, OTC ranks among the 10 largest meetings in terms of trade show attendance in the United States. OTC 2023 welcomed over 31,000 participants this year, a 30 percent increase from last year. To be able to exhibit Reach Robotics’ technology to enable the growth of offshore resource development for a sustainable future has been a remarkable opportunity.

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.
