Name of sub: Alien Type: 1atm (?), dry, electric submerged, gas on surface. Web pointer: Alien Address: Phone: 1-800-999-5060 Comments: Crush depth 1000ft. Safe depth 250ft. 12 knots on surface with gas engine with a 350 mile range. Two electric motors for 4 knots submerged speed. $175,000USD. Back to Index
Name of sub: AquaSub Type: Surface feed air, dry, electric. Web pointer: AquaSub: A Submarine You Can Build One-Man Sports Address: Phone: Comments: AquaSub is a trimaran design with the center hull capible of submerging.

Name of sub: Bionic Dolphin Type: Dry, 1atm Web pointer: Bionic Dolphin Bionic Dolphin Address: Phone: Comments: A high performance, one man submersible of streamlined fiberglass construction. Looks much like a dolphin. Here is some Bionic Dolphin (VASH) information. - about 12' long - 600 lbs (very positively buoyant) - carbon/kevlar/spectra outer shell - fiberglass inner shell around pilot - closed cell hard foam filler (sprayed in) - kevlar/foam composite bulkheads - partial F-16 canopy - 100 HP two-stroke V4 - cut-off tail flat, which created a vortex while moving submerged to helped to draw out the exhaust - builder has had it down to 30 feet - could stay down for only 15 seconds because the engine had only a small on board air supply - did not have any type of scrubber, cockpit air replenished through "blow hole" snorkel. - hydroplaned on surface at 55 mph, submerged up to 25 mph. The project was a success from a mechanical standpoint, but they were not able to market it. The Coast Guard requires certification of any dry one-atmosphere submersible being sold to the public, and they will not certify anything yet that has a fiberglass inner hull. It has to be steel, aluminum, titanium, etc. It was designed by Thomas Rowe, and the prototype was built by Dennis Kaiser & Thomas Rowe. Back to Index
