Our Story

RJE Oceanbotics™ LLC was formed in June 2017 as a division of RJE International, Inc. (27+ year leader in underwater mission critical products) with the goal of creating a drone-like underwater experience for professionals in the marine industry.

To us, a drone-like experience means that it’s as easy to fly underwater as an aerial drone; this includes balancing itself automatically and staying put when you take your hand off the controller.

After an intensive engineering effort from our amazing and dedicated team, we can proudly say that we have reached our goal.

We invite you to have a look at our SRV-8 ROV and it’s impeccable design to see how it may benefit you in getting your underwater tasks done faster, easier, and more reliably than ever before.
