This Sci-fi-ish Speedboat-Submarine Hybrid Piques The Marines Interest

Remember Hyper-Sub which briefly mentioned in a post couple of days ago? Yea. That’s the other speedboat/submarine hybrid that may have piqued the U.S.M.C’s interest. However, unlike the obvious made-for-military aesthetic of the SEAL Carrier, Hyper-Sub looks very much like a futuristic ride you would expect from a August Power or James Bond movie. It looks totally non-military and non-conventional as far as sub goes. However, what it has to offer probably begs to differ. Anywho, Hyper-Sub, along with many defense contractors, showed off its ware at the simulated amphibious maneuver at Camp Pendleton, dressed in tactical-approved black paint, back in April this year (read more HERE). Anyways, to cut long story short, Hyper-Sub is a ship-to-shore capable vessel that can travel undetected beneath the surface of the water in between.

This Speedboat Is Capable Of 30 Knots And It Is Also A 15 nm Submarine Too

In the recent IMDEX Asia 2017 in Singapore, defence contractors were again eagerly showing off their latest military hardware to entice governments from the world over. It seems like in this year’s show, marine-related technologies were in abundance (probably due to the maritime tension in this region) and among the sea of dark and light gray hardware, the JFD SEAL Carrier Swimmer Delivery Vehicle had most of our attention and for good reasons. As the product name implies, this dark, tube-like sea vehicle is designed with special operations in mind, but what the product did not explicitly point out is, it is actually a submarine/speedboat hybrid.

Ortega Mk. 1C Personal Submarine Is Both A Boat And A Submersible

Seen enough of sky and the ocean surfaces? Well, then it is time to take your adventure beneath the surface. Nope, not underground, tho. Mankind have yet to find a way to safely bored into the ground and besides, there’s really nothing see within the Earth’s crust, so I guess the next logical step is to go into the ocean and explore the deeps of the ocean and what better way to do so in a submarine?

DeepFlight’s New 3-Seat Super Falcon Submarine Targets Tropical Resorts

Most people won’t be able to afford a yacht, much less a leisure submarine, in their lifetime but thanks to the collaboration between personal submarine maker DeepFlight and China-based deep-sea equipment maker and research firm Rainbowfish Ocean Technology, you may be able to ‘fly’ underwater soon when you hit up certain tropical resorts. We said ‘may’ because it is unclear how much this sport will cost. For all we know, it may be still prohibitive for average consumers. But rest assure the plan is in the works and if money is no object, your dream of underwater experience without getting wet will realized pretty soon.

Seawolf VR360 Lets You Capture Underwater Scenery In 360-Degree

Too afraid of the deep blue to explore them? Lucky for those who have a love and hate relationship with the majestic ocean, there’s Google to satisfy your curiosity of what lies beneath the beautiful, blue surface. But that’s not the only way; you can choose to acquire a personal sub to do that if you have the dough to drop, or if you lack of the financial muscle to do so, there’s always the TTRobotix TR-SB Seawolf VR360 Unmanned Sea Vehicle that lets you do what drones do for the sky. Now, underwater drone isn’t the biggest news, but the Seawolf VR360 here is different. It is designed to enable you to record the entirety of the underwater environment in 360 – thanks to the incorporation of the Luna 360-degree camera, with waterproof case, of course, that sprouts out of the miniature submarine’s fuselage like the deep sea Anglerfish.

They will probably choke on their martinis when this behemoth breaks out of the water. Continue reading Superyacht Takes A Dive With Migaloo M-Series Private Submersible Yachts

Boeing New Autonomous Submarine Can Stay Submerged For Months

Boeing is most notable for commercial and military aircraft, but unbeknownst to some, it also dabbles in watercraft, specifically underwater systems, for over 50 years now. The company’s latest development is a 51-foot Echo Voyager, an unmanned undersea vehicle, that’s design to operate autonomously for months on end. Prior to Echo Voyager, Boeing has two other UUVs, the 32-ft Echo Seeker and the 18-ft Echo Ranger. But in the eyes Boeing, the duo are just “testbeds” as they have an effective mission period of two-three days and both requires a surface ship for launch and recovery. Clearly, those aren’t the ideal feature set in today’s context. Continue reading Boeing New Autonomous Submarine Can Stay Submerged For Months

Triton 6600/2 Personal Submarine Can Dive To 6,600 Feet, Cost A Cool $5.5M

Ever wanted to explore the deep underwater world without having to get wet or worry about decompression? Well, now you can – if you have at least $5.5 million to spare. With that amount of money, you can procure the Triton 6600/2 personal submarine which you can take down to 6,600 feet deep, all while enjoying the surface pressure throughout the entire journey. And at 6,600 feet, the Triton 6600/2 has the honor of being world’s first deep diving submersible with a transparent acrylic hull, beating U-Worx’s research sub that did 5,600 feet. Though, it won’t have robotic arms for you to pick up whatever underwater relics that you may stumble upon.

U-Boat Worx Launches World’s First 3-person Submarine Capable of Diving to 5,600 Feet

Getting to a depth of 5,600 feet (1,700 meters) is not unachievable, but it is usually done through crammed submersible with limited field of view or unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV). With that in mind, Dutch private submarine builder, U-Worx teamed up with leading scientists to design a compact and cost-effective submarine that will enable researchers to reach extreme depth safely, comfortably and without inhibiting the vision. Based on the submarine builder’s C-Explorer and packing proven technology, the U-Boat Worx C-Researcher 3, as it is called, is the world’s first 3-person submarine capable of deep dive and it is the first of its kind to achieve such depth with a spherical acrylic pressure hull design.
