This patented and proven technology uses the Hyper-Buoyancy concept to create over 30,000lbs of sub-sea lifting capability. With nearly 900 horsepower, a 500-gallon fuel capacity and an ability to dive at will, the Hyper-Sub isn’t just another mini-sub. It is a technologically advanced vessel with unmatched capabilities that has far-reaching applications for governments, industry and private interests on a global scale.
Being first and foremost a speedboat, the Hyper-Sub deploys from almost any dock or beach just like any other speedboat. It needs no transport vessel or crew for it to be taken to a dive site and deployed as with current technology. This capability alone creates a dramatic shift in costs and time associated with subsea access.
Such an advantage, combined with the Hyper-Sub’s ability to carry over 6,000lbs of optional equipment, presents a vessel that can now be outfitted for a much broader range of end users. It’s small size also allows it to operate in even the shallowest of waters which is an area of considerable interest to governments around the globe.
The end result, whether it is for coastal or port security, sub-sea pipeline inspections or simply for private use, the Hyper-Sub is the first sub-sea platform that can practically address so many unsatisfied needs, while being able to do so in a more cost effective and safe manner.
