The VideoRay Explorer X3 system includes the 8-pound submersible, control box, tether, manual, and tool kit and adds the Tether Deployment System (TDS) for quick coiling and recoiling of the tether.
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 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.
