The renowned submarine manufacturer U-Boat Worx (Holland) presented the world's lightest underwater vehicle - Nemo. It can be taken to the shore for subsequent diving on a regular trailer, and then towed to the dive site by boat or with the help of a small yacht.
The Nemo is only 155 cm high and weighs 2, 500 kg, so it takes up less space when transporting than a pair of jet skis. Its speed under water is 5.5 km / h. The submarine is designed for 8 hours of autonomous operation at a depth of 100 m. The interior of the Nemo can be accessed through the top hatch.
A special certificate is required to fly the Nemo, but the pilot can be operated by an ordinary passenger if necessary using the Manta controller with autopilot capabilities, including automatic heading and depth control. The vessel can also be remotely controlled from a yacht or shore using a Marlin controller.
The Nemo submarine is estimated at $ 1.5 million. Its production is expected to begin when a sufficient number of orders are received. It will be supplied with air conditioning, wireless underwater communication system and floodlight. Additional lighting, sonar, external manipulator and navigation package are offered as options. U-Boat Worx also offers a 12-day management training course at its Sub Center Curacao.
