Deep Diving
Source: Triton Submarines

Triton 36,000 is an innovation in glass manufacturing, fibre optics and touch-screen technology, and capable of reaching the deepest part of the ocean

Triton Submarines has developed the Triton 36,000 full ocean depth submersible (“Triton 36,000”). Based on the chassis design of current Triton models that can dive up to 3,300 feet, the new Triton 36,000 features revolutionary new glass production technology that will allow it to become the deepest diving multi-passenger autonomous submersible in the world, and provide passengers a truly immersive experience.

According to the company, the Triton 36,000 full ocean depth submersible passenger cockpit will be approximately six feet in diameter and made entirely of borosilicate glass. Developed by San Diego-based rayotek Scientific, a world leader in high-pressure glass technology fabrication, the cockpit will open and close like a clam shell, forming a complete, transparent sphere.

The Triton 36,000 will be controlled through a system of touch screen controls and information displays with commands communicated by fibre optic systems that transmit light signals through the glass hull. Temperature controls keep the interior comfortable for shirtsleeves while the design keeps internal pressure stabilised at one atmosphere—the same as being above water. The sub can descend at 500 feet per minute, meaning it can reach the deepest spot in the ocean in approximately 75 minutes.

Triton has also announced the “race to inner space”, an invitation to aspiring ocean explorers and entrepreneurs around the world to join Triton in the pursuit of making the deep ocean accessible to all, discovering new life forms critical to science and research, and rekindling America’s passion for leading the world in exploration and adventure.
