deepflight submarines are the result of forty-five years of experience innovating the world’s most advanced underwater vehicles. led by graham hawkes – a british marine engineer responsible for building and piloting a hydrobatic craft that attacked james bond in the 1980 film ‘for your eyes only’ – the ‘super falcon’ mark II has been completely redeveloped following the success of its predeccesor, the ‘super falcon’ mark I. as the pilot or passenger in a boundless sea, one has the freedom to do barrel rolls with dolphins, go inverted and cruise alongside grey whales and sharks, or dive into the abyss for deep sea exploration.

 state-of-the-art tech, coupled with light, high strength composites provides unparalleled speed, range and agility

advanced piloting and life support electronics such as fingertip controls, a intuitive graphical flight display and through-water communication make exploring easy, allowing users to focus on the underwater journey. the advanced submarine features led lights and low electromagnetic fields to leave the depths undisturbed. the craft is equipped with lithium ion batteries to provide a quiet, efficient ride with zero emissions.

[h/t] the verge

  • Looks nice, but I find it very, very difficult to believe this goes to depths of 11,000m.

    Mikey says:
  • How does one see what one is moving over?

    Ron Smith says:
  • Mikey,

    As they have stated, you can fly inverted if you wish to see what is directly below at some given time.

    Bob Anderson says:
  • Hope you will provide a video of the sub in action at some point in time.

    Bob Anderson says:
  • No, this one doesn’t go to 11,000m – that would be the DeepFlight Challenger. The Super Falcon goes to 120m, which is more or less the limit of natural light. Here is a video of the sub in action: http://www.deepflight.com/underwater-flight-deepflight-super-falcon/
