The VideoRay Explorer system includes the 8-pound submersible, control box, 76 m (250 ft) of tether, manual, and tool kit. All components fit neatly in two watertight, rolling Pelican cases that fit easily in the trunk of a car or in airline luggage compartments. The entire system is stored in the Pelican cases and weighs less than 45 kg (100 lbs).

The Explorer is depth rated to 92 m (300 ft). Among Explorer’s features are a new skid and nozzles developed by NASA, a boost in thrust over previous models by nearly 80 percent, automatic depth control, and a three-axis joystick.

The Explorer includes a color camera and a 5 inch LCD color display monitor. An external video monitoring/recording device that has a composite video input– typically a TV/VCR combination – is recommended for recording missions.
The Tether Deployment System (TDS) is an excellent option for quick coiling and recoiling of the tether.
