Keep your gloves on and make essential annotations in your dive reports with the integrated pen

We field test equipment at our headquarters in Norway, so believe us when we say you can even use it with gloves. Compatible with all Blueye ROV models, it is a versatile choice for underwater operations inside your organization. A few other features that make this worth consideration are; excellent battery life, a bright screen, an integrated pen for annotating dive reports, and a portable case for easy storage and transport.

Since your focus on the task can be the key to a successful mission, the ruggedized controller bundle can be used with a harness, allowing you to easily let go of the controls when you need your hands free. Adding to the list of capabilities, the Samsung Active Tab 3 also functions as a standalone Android tablet, including all the built-in features you would expect.
