The VideoRay Explorer ROV Systems have been configured for ROV users who require more functionality than the Scout ROV systems but still have a limited budget. The VideoRay Explorer ROV systems add a higher resolution, 160° tilt color camera, water depth readout, auto depth feature, compass heading readout, and run time meter with the same 76 m (250 ft) depth rating that the Scout carries. Explorer ROV systems lack the ability to attach any of the accessories compatible with the Pro 3 and Pro 4 systems.

VideoRay Explorer ROV systems are typically reserved for simple interior inspections in a calm underwater environment and for public museum and educational displays.
