We’ve had a momentous third quarter with the launch of our new name, Reach Robotics, which has ushered in a new chapter of growth and development for our business. Here’s a round-up of our favourite moments this season:

πŸš€ We’re working with the University of Sydney on solutions to complex, on-orbit space control challenges. See the full story here.

Dr Xiaofeng Wu and his team from the University of Sydney with Anders Ridley-Smith, Reach Robotics Business Development Manager

πŸ•Ή We attended Land Forces 2022 in Brisbane Australia where we demo’d our new intuitive robotic arm controllers, ‘Master Pilot’ for the first time!

🐠 We touched base with Topaz Subsea’s integration of our Subsea lights on the new RJE Oceanbotics SRV8 X ROV. Read more here.

🦾 We broke down what makes the Bravo Mk2 our most advanced manipulator series yet! Find out here.

πŸ–¨οΈ We upgraded our verification and prototyping with an in-house CNC machine, 3D printer, and an additional hydrostatic pressure tank.

Company Milestones:

πŸ‘‹ We’ve grown our team to 50+ talented individuals and have several successful internships underway.

🌏 Reached the milestone of over 700+ units in the field in 25+ countries

πŸ‘ We continued to support local aspiring engineers via sponsoring and participating in university society endeavours.

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.
