Sub Data:
The role of the SDL-1 is to perform missions, with or without the deployment
of divers, such as underwater rescue, underwater salvage, oceanographic
support, underwater research, and inspection of the seabed. The submersible
is propelled by five independently controlled thrusters, mounted in fixed
positions; two vertical, two horizontal, and one lateral. Each is pressure
compensated, and is driven by a 5 hp 120 v DC brushless motor. The control
system includes a microprocessor and allows various pilot modes, from manual
to fully automatic. Power is provided by lead-acid batteries which are
carried in externally mounted pressure compensated battery boxes. High
pressure watertight penetrators are provided for the cabling from these
power sources, and for the externally mounted equipment. All circuits are
protected with magnetic breakers, and system is ungrounded, with no power
leads attached to the hull.
