The VideoRay Scout system includes the 8-pound submersible, control box, 40 m (131 ft) of neutrally buoyant tether, manual, and tool kit. All components fit neatly in a watertight, rolling Pelican case that fits easily in the trunk of a car or in airline luggage compartments. The entire system is stored in the Pelican case and weighs 32 kg (70 lbs).

The Scout is depth rated to 91 m (300 ft). Among the Scout’s features are a new skid and nozzles developed by NASA, a boost in thrust by nearly 80 percent over previous models, and a three-axis joystick.

The Scout 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.
