China’s manned submarine breakthrough 3700 m mark
(Reporter Wu Peng) yesterday, Science and Technology, State Oceanic Administration held a press conference to announce China’s first self-designed, self-integrated development of the “dragon” manned submersible 3000 m sea trial a success. This indicates that China became the United States, France, Russia, Japan, the fifth country to master more than 3,500 meters deep manned deep diving technique.
manned deep submergence technology among the world’s top five
State Oceanic Administration, said this year May 31 to July 18, “dragon” manned submersibles in the South China Sea 3000 m sea trial a success, completed a total of 17 dives, 7 of them exceeded 20 meters depth, four times over 3000 meters, the maximum dive depth of 3759 meters, the depth has been over the global ocean’s average depth of 3682 meters, and created underwater and submarine operations 9 hours 03 minutes of record.
3000 meter-scale sea trials of a successful, indicates that China became the United States, France, Russia, Japan, the fifth country to master more than 3,500 meters deep manned deep diving technique.
met on four occasions during the trial period a typhoon
It is reported that the United States, France, Russia, Japan has the world’s only five 6000 m sea level manned submersibles, “dragon” in kind in the world of manned submersibles in the dive with a maximum design depth — 7,000 meters, the scope of work can cover 99.8% of the world’s marine areas, representing high-tech field of deep-sea forefront.
test commander Liu Feng said, “We perform sea trials in the course of last year, 75 days experiencing four typhoons, two tropical storms and two tropical depressions.” During this year’s sea trials, has been subject to strong southwest monsoon.
“dragon” maximum design depth of 7000 meters dive
purposes: to carry scientists and engineers into the deep ocean, the seabed perform a variety of marine scientific investigation tasks, deep-sea exploration, high-precision seabed topography, suspicious object detection and capture, etc., and can perform fixed laying underwater equipment, submarine cables and pipelines inspection, probing and other deep-sea fishing and other operations.
