The Hyper-Sub MSV: Game Changing Capabilities
The Hyper-Sub MSV (Multipurpose Sub-Sea Vehicle) is the world's first long range speedboat that is also a true, heavy-lift, utility submarine. But why is that different or important?
Though there are many reasons for this, the most important are as follows.
1) Size and Persistence: Unlike its larger military cousins, the MSV is small enough to be used in extremely shallow waters, undetected, for prolonged periods of time. It is a critical security space or zone that is not realistically serviceable by any other technology.
2) Ease of Use and Economy: Unlike other mini-subs or subsea machines, the MSV does not need to be carried or supported to be used. It’s a speedboat, so it can go where it wants, when it wants, and at a similar hourly cost as that of any other speedboat. When desired, it can dive with the throw of only a few switches, accessing the subsea environment at no additional cost which is a radical departure from the current norm.
3) Modularity and Heavy Lift: With over 6,000 lbs. of variable cargo carrying capacity, the MSV can be outfitted with multiple cabin configurations, electronics packages, and equipment options to serve many different end-user types and/or purposes.
In combination, the competitive advantages created by these characteristics make the Hyper-Sub MSV the first platform capable of filling so many existing needs across such a wide variety of market sectors.

It can go where you want, when you want…just like any other speedboat.
The Hyper-Sub can dive to 500 feet with a certified acrylic cabin
It can travel over 300 miles submerged on a single deployment
It can travel approximately 500 miles on the surface (depending on sea state) to almost any point of interest, then dive with the throw of only a few switches
It is the first mini-sub capable of being outfitted with over 6,000 lbs. of optional equipment, cabin configurations, and electronics packages for different end users
It routinely traveled, fully submerged, in waters as shallow as 15 feet deep without breaching the surface (which is important to governments)
It is the first true submarine capable of being beached, or launched, in only three feet of water (which is important for amphibious ops, tourist ops, or even private owners)
It revolutionizes mini-sub safety by having over 30,000 lbs (15 tons) of reserve lift when submerged
The end result is a manned sub-sea utility vehicle that, unlike any min-sub before, provides a more practical, versatile, and inexpensive way to access, and work, in the sub-sea environment.
