Boxfish Research

Who we are

We are a bunch of enthusiastic explorers, divers, engineers & software developers with a passion for pushing the boundaries of what is believed to be possible!

Boxfish Research began after a chance meeting between three engineers who happened to be trialing home-built ROV’s (remotely operated vehicle) at the same time and location in Auckland, New Zealand. Disappointed with the results and feeling ROV technology had been stagnant since the 90’s they vowed to build a better ROV using up-to-date control algorithms coupled with smart engineering design and software solutions.

Over the course of 5 years, initially part time and then full time, the trio achieved remarkable results. They created an industry leading ROV, that is lightweight, easy to use, easy to deploy combined with unmatched image quality, manoeuvrability, range and depth with elegant simplicity.

Boxfish Research started shipping ROVs in September 2018. We have pending patents for several key areas of our ROV and more patentable designs that are currently treated as trade secrets. Boxfish Research is well placed to achieve its strategic goals with a strong core product range, an excellent development and management team.

Our values

Boxfish Research nowadays is directed by co-founders Craig Anderson and Ben King, who took on a number of challenges and found solutions for problems that hadn’t been solved before. A commitment to excellence, a strong team on the backend, and a sense of integrity and purpose is what has kept Boxfish Research at the forefront for 4 years, with many more to come. We care about adding interesting and viable updates to our ROV so that our clients have the greatest technology underwater. This is what drives us all, every single day.
