Team Info





The MATE ROV Competition is a truly unique robotics program. Our reach is all-inclusive: from elementary through university, MATE teams are comprised of students from every age group. We're not cost-prohibitive: robots can be built on a very small budget and still be highly competitive. And we're real-world driven: all of our missions are based on real tasks and challenges faced by the marine industry today. 

Not sure where to start?  Visit the respective links to the SCOUT, NAVIGATOR, RANGER, and EXPLORER teams for information about our competition classes!
