We’ve had a great second quarter here at Reach Robotics with trade shows, community and industry partnerships and, as always, exciting R&D endeavours.

Here’s a round up of our highlights:

🐴 The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) deployed Alpha 5 for a critical recovery mission following a tragic fatality in a remote, arctic subsea environment including their use of the Reach Alpha 5 to manoeuvre the door-handle 90° downwards, opening the door and allowing for the victim’s body to be recovered. Read the Case Study.

🚀 We secured an Australian Government Defence Contract to develop advanced robotic clearance diver technology improving operational efficiency and safety for Navy operators.

Operation of Reach Manipulators

📰 Our CEO Paul was interviewed for a feature article in Engineers Australia Create magazine. Read the full article here.

“I really value a practical approach to engineering,” says Phillips. “We develop a lot of hardware in house and build very complicated mechanical assemblies. All the theory in the world only gets you so far when it comes to putting these kinds of things together.”

🎓 Society Sponsorships

We sponsor three university societies; UOW Women in Stem Society, Sydney Uni Mechatronic Organisation (SUMO) and USYD Rocketry Team. This has been a big quarter for society events;

🦾 Embedded control systems engineer Kyle presented to the SUMO Society as part of their industry speaker series about the specific challenges of designing and manufacturing our manipulators. You can watch the full presentation here.

⚙️R&D Technician Luke presented at the UNSW Mechatronics Society industry night on their experience working at Reach Robotics whilst simultaneously completing their degrees. Read more here.

🏢 The Sydney Uni Mechatronics Organisation (SUMO) visited the Reach Robotics office to gain industry insight, see what we do, meet our team and learn about our technology. The group were able to demo our ROV manipulators. Read more here.

Trade Shows

🇦🇺 🇺🇸 We attended two trade shows this quarter. The largest-ever Indo-Pacific International Maritime Exposition was held at the ICC in Darling Harbour, just around the corner from our head office. Later that month, we attended the Special Operations Forces Industry Conference (SOFIC) 2022 in Tampa, Florida as part of Team Defence Australia.
