The NAVIGATOR class is midway between SCOUT and RANGER. It is most appropriate for high schools some experience in robotics and with the MATE competition and middle schools with one or more years’ experience in the SCOUT class. NAVIGATOR class ROVs are meant to be an intermediate level between SCOUT and RANGER in order to help students build on their knowledge of ROV design and construction.

NAVIGATOR class is best suited for:

  • Middle Schools with 1 or more years’ experience in the SCOUT class
  • High Schools with 0 to 1 years’ experience

NAVIGATOR teams participate in regional competitions ONLY.  Some regions do not have the NAVIGATOR class.
