Electronics and Software Replacement for BlueROV2

Professional-level features in a compact 4” tube

Mission Robotics provides cutting-edge control and observation systems for Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs). The above system is easily compatible with existing BlueROV2 and similar systems, taking an affordable marine ROV system to the next level with superior camera performance, time-synchronized video and telemetry data feeds, operational efficiency for fast and reliable deployment, future-proof hardware, and topside client software for customization and expansion.

Mission Robotics can turn a BlueROV2 system into a state-of-the-art professional marine ROV for marine exploration, reef preservation, infrastructure inspection, and more. Our engineers can customize the system to fit new designs for custom applications. The sky is the limit.


Superior Camera Performance

Our highly-optimized video pipeline aims to provide the most crisp and responsive piloting experience possible, rivaling the latency of traditional analog cameras and providing the best image quality on the market in its price class.

The entire optical path has been designed and tuned for excellent low-light performance, providing an out-of-the-box experience that will allow you to see further and more clearly than ever before in some of the most challenging environments.

Time-Synchronized Video and Telemetry Data Recording

All data streams (video, vehicle telemetry, and user-added sensors/devices) are time-synchronized and recorded together, allowing for simple post-processing and analysis.

Operational Efficiency

Because the cost of field operations is typically significantly more than the cost of hardware, our products are designed to be reliable and robust, reducing downtime and allowing you to focus on your mission, rather than worrying about the tools used to accomplish it.

Designed for Customization and Expansion

Because marine applications often differ significantly in their goals and requirements, we built a system where a user with basic programming skills can easily add sensors and actuators onto the vehicle to meet their exact requirements.

Ever-Evolving Platform

As vehicle and sensor technology is constantly becoming more advanced, the system hardware was designed with future-proofing in mind. The main processor is a NVIDIA® Jetson Nano™, which has substantially more processing power than a Raspberry Pi* and features higher-bandwidth interfaces like USB 3.0 and Gigabit Ethernet. The flight management unit (FMU) uses a significantly faster processor and newer generation sensors (gyro, accelerometer, magnetometer) than the 3DR Pixhawk® 1*.

By moving to these newer processors, we have significantly expanded I/O and processing capabilities, enabling advanced use cases:

*The BlueROV2 uses a Raspberry Pi 3B and a Pixhawk® 1.


We are continuously improving the system with new features to make the product better and operations more efficient. Our development roadmap is flexible and our customer needs drive what features we build next. Our current roadmap includes the following features:
