RE2 Robotics is currently developing underwater manipulation technology to support the U.S. Navy's Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) efforts. The integration of cost-effective and reliable single and dual-arm manipulation systems onto ROV and AUVs promises to bring stand-off capabilities to EOD technicians operating underwater. These capabilities translate to a variety of underwater manipulation tasks, including operations in the Oil & Gas Industry.
