Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. It can send real-time video via a 50m neutrally-buoyant cable that runs up to a waterproof buoy which is equipped with wireless transmission system.

Navatics MITO is capable of carrying payload with up to 500 grams net weight underwater. We even prepared an additional mount, in case users are interested in mounting an extra camera or scientific sensor.

Equipped with wireless transmission system based on radio frequency, Navatics MITO can send real-time live and video via a neutrally-buoyant cable that runs up to a waterproof buoy. You can explore the underwater world through your smartphone up to 500m away from the buoy.

MITO’s capacity of the storage is fixed at 64GB, which can store up to 2.5-hour long 4K 30fps videos, or save more than 3600 12MP images with JPG and DNG format.

Removable SD Card will compromise waterproofing since user need to maintain the opening and closing the sd card chamber, it is true that getting image from wifi is slow, that is why in our design we take the image by using cable from top connector.

The LED we used are from CREE that has 5700k temperature with 80 CRI(+-2).

No,it is not very applicable and the cost is high. Infrared imaging underwater can only operate in a limited range, approx. 1meter. we do have a plan to invent a next generation which is more modular in the future.

MITO is not capable of recording sounds underwater yet. 

All the images are stored in the body of MITO,  an USB cable would easily connect it directly to the pc.

The remote can connect to a tablet and smart phone (IOS and Android) but only by using an OTG cable. The phone will be held by a spring-loaded bracket with a maximum stretch of 18 cm/7 inches. 

the remote control is not waterproof

the phone can share its wifi and broadcast the stream so that multiple instances can share real time stream and navigation. 

no. Currently the remote relies on the USB OTG interface to stream out the live image to the smartphone, so one way to do it is that we can broadcast the stream via smartphone so other TV or goggles that can do screen mirroring can be used

This is normal since we remove the IR filter in our camera so that the red part will be more sensitive under the water, the stream might look too red on land but it will be perfect under the water.

The Android version is available on Google Play, but the iOS version is yet to launch, users can download it on Testflight, use the link we provided on our website page “App”.

The waterproof communication buoy transmits wireless stream to the remote via custom protocol based on 2.4 GHz Radio Frequency, so it works best in places where there are no wifi network or other 2.4GHz devices.

Yes, this function only works for photos. But this function is quite flexible for Android users. For example, users can input their underwater photos to the correct Navatics App folder, and use the App function to correct them. While, it’s not applicable for iOS users.

There is a dive log function in our App, GPS location, diving depth curve profile, water temperature, and other necessary information can be automatically recorded by MITO users can take notes and input things like people who are together with you during exploration, marine life you see through MITO, etc.

 Unfortunately, this function is yet to be developed. Usually, the compass heading will be useful to find your way back home. While the most common way is to use the tilt-lock function to pitch up and look around finding the yellow tether, and trace the tether roller back home.

Navatics MITO comes with a swappable battery which can run for approx. 4hr under normal usage and approx. 2hr under intensive usage.

 the battery is swappable and can be charged by our AC adaptor, which is included in the set. You can take the battery out from Navatics MITO for recharge. It takes approx. 2.5 hours to charge to full capacity. 

Navatics MITO is designed to be positively buoyant. If the battery runs out underwater or there are some circumstances that makes it fail to operate, it will float up to the surface, so that users can retrieve it.

It is lithium polymer battery. You can carry a lithium battery in carry-on if it is under 99WH. Our removable battery capacity is 80WH so it is within the limit. If they think it is a problem, there is big stickers underneath the battery that says it is 80WH and CE and FCC certified, just show them the label and you are good to go!

cable is reinforced with kevlar inside which can sustain force up to 100kg

there will be a hole on the roller side and you can attach carabiner that will lock the tether length.

There is a hook right next to the tether connector. The tether is attached to the hook, and the hook is connected with the body of Navatics MITO. When you pull the tether, it won’t pull against the connector but the entire body, so it can sustain a lot of force.

 As the cable is neutrally buoyant, excess cable will stays on the surface, which makes the cables less likely to get tangled.

The wireless communication between the waterproof buoy and remote control maintains its best performances under 500m range. If Navatics MITO was driven further than this range, both stream and power would still be functioning until 800m. (This upper limit may vary based on environmental condition). Stability of the stream may not be guaranteed beyond 500m range.

MITO is equipped with our active stabilization algorithm which enables its whole body to manoeuvre steadily underwater, even in complex underwater environment. It can achieve 2m/s (3.84 knots) to easily overcome currents which are less than 1m/s(1.94 knots). Also, it has 4 integrated sensors for monitoring its depth and orientation, and a 4K 1/1.7 inch camera which has embedded EIS and is optimized for a low-light condition.

Yes. Navatics MITO works in both saltwater and freshwater. It is designed to be corrosion resistant, so it works well in saltwater as well. Besides, the effect of different water density is negligible, so users would not need to adjust the additional weight.

We designed the camera lens to rest at the deepest point surrounded by metal plates, so it’s going to scratch the metal instead of the lens although there are some cases where the lens might still get scratch from the collision, especially if the collided surface is pointy.

MITO is protected with thruster guards which prevent foreign objects from being sucked into the thrusters. Also, MITO would immediately turn off the thrusters and notify its user through App. When thrusters are off, MITO will float to the surface because it is positively buoyant. If it got dragged by weed or for whatever reason doesn’t float, you can pull it with the tether which is reinforced with Kevlar and can sustain force up to 100kg.



Do you cover any accidental damages?

We provide 1-year warranty. The warranty does not cover damages resulting from any accidents or abuse.

Where can I try operating MITO?

Right now, we only have online store available, but we are keen for expo and small event around the world, where you can try for yourself.

Is there volume pricing?

Yes, there is. Please send an email to the info@navatics.com for further discussion.

Can MITO ship global wide? And how much import taxes and duties do I need to pay?

Yes, usually MITO would use DHL  to ship global wide. Import taxes and duties are required for most of the country, but under different rules. Users can send email to us: info@navatics.com for more duties and import taxes enquiry.
