ICTINEU 3 submersible

The design, construction and quality control have been approved under Germanisher Lloyd certification rules, and the vehicle will be launched under Germanisher Lloyd, GL A5 classification.
Propulsion and Manoeuvring Complete 6 controllable degrees of freedom The configuration of the 8 thrusters provide a vectorial propulsion system on 5 axis: 3 translation (XYZ), 1 yaw, 1 roll. Trimming (pitch) is provided by internal buoyancy tanks. Z axis is redundant (thruster and ballast). Total Thruster electrical power is 16kW distributed as follows: 4 x 2kW forth/backwards (X axis), total of 164kg on stern 2 x 2kW horizontal, one bow, one stern, total of 82kg (Y axis + yaw) 2 x 2kW vertical, 1 port, 1 starboard, total of 82kg (Z axis + roll) Proportional speed control between -100% and 100% in all thrusters Buoyancy tanks, provide buoyancy control (Z axis) and trimming (pitch), with +/- 50kg of manoeuvring range. Piloting is done by a PLC- assisted console: 1 joystick, 3 axis (advance, lateral translation and yaw), plus 12 manoeuvring control buttons (buoyancy, pitch, up/down) High capacity and high power batteries: 30kW continuous, 40 kWh (10 hours full autonomy at normal load capacity). Depth control is redundant, as it is measured simultaneously by different sensors: two analogue pressure sensors, one digital pressure sensor Keller PA-33X / 200bar / 80794, and the pressure transducer in the CTD probe. Sensors Platform Ictineu 3 is equipped with a sensors platform, easy to plug and play. Outside pressure hull: Capacity: 18 shielded twisted pairs, 1A capacity each, for client-provided instrumentation. Power: 12VDC and 24VDC in series Junction box: oil filled, pressure tolerant, with 4 x 8pin Subconn Micro connectors (large range of sensors and equipment configuration: 12V, +24V, GND, Series port type RS232 or RS485, ETHERNET, analogue signal, etc.). Glands option with direct access to distribution board. Inside pressure hull: direct access to distribution board. Payload: 300kg that can be distributed between instrumentation and sample/objects collection CTD and multi-parametric probe will be always mounted on board an continuously logging data. Information recorded during the mission and during the ascent and descent along the water column will be available to the scientific community after each dive. Lighting and camera system Two vertical bars in the bow have the double function of protecting the acrylic dome from any impact, and at the same time to provide a rail system where a sliding horizontal bar will allow to attach lights, cameras, sensors, etc. Front acrylic window provides extraordinary transparency and no image deformation or refraction. This allows to make filming or photography with professional cameras from inside the pressure hull, with full control of equipment by the professional, and no dependence of external housings (which usually limit optics and camera controls). Passengers configuration and ergonomics Position of passengers an pilot is configurable depending on mission, and can be even exchanged during the dive. This is possible because piloting is done by a mobile assisted control board, and due to the wide field of view that allows pilot full control from any position. Passengers are always sitting comfortably, as ergonomics plays an important role in the vehicle. Download the leaflet: LEAFLET Download the data-sheet: DATA-SHEET
