The Hyper-Sub Record Run: Pursuing World Records With An Attitude
Though we are a start-up company, that does not mean that we do not have the most historic, ground-breaking innovation going. As a matter of fact, the Hyper-Sub already made history when it demonstrated, over the course of 21 dives, to be the first vessel capable of performing as a true surface vessel that could also transition and perform, with the throw of only a few switches, as a true dry (pressure boundary) cabin submarine. It also demonstrated that it was the first submarine capable of parking in waters as shallow as three feet deep after cruising fully submerged in waters only 15 feet deep, a capability that is extremely important to governments around the globe.
Now, starting April 2nd of this year, and as part of a larger funding strategy as seen here, the Company intends to demonstrate, and document, how capable, useful, and economic the Hyper-Sub platform is compared to its counterparts, using only our first generation design platform. Some of the world records we intend to set are as follows.

Hyper-Sub Capabilities / World Records
The world's fastest privately owned, dry cabin mini-submarine: This will be the first record we pursue. In fact, by the time we are done, the Hyper-Sub might prove to be the fastest submarine, privately owned or otherwise, in the world because we will pursue this record while running on the surface. Of course, some will say "That's not a fair comparison". Our response? "That's the point we are trying to make". Speed, ease of use, low use cost in a package that IS a submarine IS unprecedented. "Fair" has nothing to do with it. More capabilities is (simply put) more capabilities.
Longest distance traveled by a privately owned mini-sub: This will be the second record we pursue, and yes, we will pursue this on the surface as well with the same caveats as mentioned above. Though mathematically capable of traveling 500 miles, our selected target will (most likley) be 300 miles.
Longest distance traveled submerged during a single deployment for a privately owned submarine: Unlike other mini-subs, the Hyper-Sub can recharge its batteries any number of times during a single deployment given it can carry 500 gallons of fuel as a standard. This translates into the Hyper-Sub being the first mini-sub capable of traveling hundreds of miles submerged during a single deployment without assistance.
Longest time submerged per deployment: This record will be set simultaneously during the above mentioned record. The Hyper-Sub can remain submerged longer than any other mini-sub.
Other Records to Be Pursued
- The fastest to deploy
- The easiest to deploy
- Most dives in a day
- Most dives per deployment
- Widest variation in cargo
- Lowest cost to deploy
- Widest cargo carrying lifting capability
