The Hyper-Sub is a speedboat that is also a true, heavy-lift, utility submarine. It is the first of its kind and we call it the Hyper-Sub Multipurpose Sub-Sea Vehicle or MSV. As seen here, the MSV can address the needs of many different end users around the globe in ways never before thought possible.
The Hyper-Sub is just over 45 feet long and has a dry weight of 30,000 pounds.On the surface, two 480-horsepower diesel engines let it cruise at 30 miles per hour while carrying up to 6,000 pounds of cargo.It has a maximum surface speed of 40 knots and a maximum surface range of 500 miles. In dive mode the Hyper-Sub can plunge up to 250 feet.
The Hyper-Sub is a revolutionary innovation in subsea access. By combining the speed and ease-of-use of a 900hp speedboat with the deep-diving capabilities of a submarine, the Hyper-Sub completely redefines everything we thought was possible in subsea technology.
As a hybrid vessel, it performs all necessary functions for full-scale deployment at a fraction of the time and cost of traditional submarines.It is scalable, modular and reconfigurable. It can deep-sea dive or travel just barely submerged in the shallowest of waters. When traveling on the surface, the Hyper-Sub can recharge its batteries.
