The BlueROV2 is our flagship product. It comprises many of our other products including our T200 Thrusters3″ and 4″ Series watertight enclosuresBar30 pressure sensorFathom-X Tether Interface (FXTI), and our Fathom tether and tether interface electronics. Many of these products have been on the market for quite a while and have proven themselves through thousands of successful hours of operation in the field. The BlueROV2 continues this legacy with high-quality parts, a meticulous design, and rugged reliability.

Leveraging the effort that has gone into the ArduPilot project and related hardware projects, the BlueROV2 uses the open-source ArduSub software and the Pixhawk autopilot, providing autonomous capabilities rarely seen in mini-ROVs and hackability paralleled by none. The software is actively developed and improved by Blue Robotics and other contributors, with constant upgrades and improvements to make the BlueROV2 even better. The included Advanced Electronics Packageprovides a high-speed Ethernet connection with the Fathom-X tether interface and a Raspberry Pi companion computer for additional processing power. It provides live 1080p HD video directly to a computer or tablet and flexibility for future expansion.

QGroundControl Interface for ArduSub and the BlueROV2.

The BlueROV2 is offered with several configurable options. All of these options are user-upgradeable at a later time.

  • The Fathom Tether is available in a variety of lengths up to 300 meters (984 feet).
  • The Lumen Lights are optional and either one or two pairs can be used. Each set is ready for installation and each individual light outputs 1500 lumens, the brightness of a car headlight.

The BlueROV2 ships without batteries due to shipping restrictions. We recommend our Lithium-ion Battery (14.8V, 18Ah), as well as the Multistar 10,000 mAh 14.8V lithium polymer battery pack from HobbyKing. Get a few for extended operation.
