Our story

Navatics MITO is the most stable and affordable underwater drone in the consumer market.

Navatics MITO benefits from its unique inertial stable algorithm, if an external force tries to change its balance, MITO will correct its vertical and horizontal bearing, and return to its previous state.MITO’s waterproof technology means two swappable batteries will enable longer duration usage for up to 8 hours, which is a unique feature compared to other similar devices.Plus, our Wireless Communication Buoy, that extends the operation range to +\- 500 meters distant. Therefore, with long distance operational ability, MITO can cope with extreme usage in underwater filming, fish detecting, offshore out to sea (all day long water activity). A perfect match for sailing.

We started a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, and after 5hrs was 100% funded and after 15 days we raised $114,411, which is 300% funded.At the beginning, our customers came from different continents around the world, close to the ocean. But these days, even inland, where lakes and rivers are the requisite location, customers are using MITO to explore new locations.

Our brand ambassador, the freediving world record holder, Jessea Lu, says MITO is capable of helping her in freediving classes. MITO is easy to maneuver, easy to set up, using MITOs stabilized underwater footage, Jess can play the video back and forth for specific teaching. Therefore, saving her from going down to the training pool over and over, thus improving her teaching efficiency.

It can be an underwater filming device, where the water is too dangerous/turbulent to allow divers to descend due to safety issues! MITO is designed for long period operating for marine survey inspections, boat inspection and aquaculture and saves the investment of labor force. Lastly, it could be a diving partner, to secure the safety of each dive and record it.

MITO was created to enhance underwater recreation. We wanted MITO to be affordable, stable, easy-to-use, and provide people with an opportunity to observe the world beneath the waves and have fun doing it!
