Roboter sucht nach dem Titan Tauchboot
June 22, 2023 -
Ein französischer Roboter, der bis in 6.000 Meter Tiefe tauchen kann, könnte für die Suche nach dem Touristentauchboot, das am Tauchgang zur Titanic war, lebensrettend sein.
As the reported oxygen reserves onboard the Titan are expected to run out, a French oceanographic vessel L'Atalante arrived over the wreck site bearing what many believe is the only hope of being rescued – an underwater robot called Victor 6000.
Victor 6000, described by Capt Jamie Frederick of the USCG as “state of the art”, can dive deeper than other equipment now at the site in the North Atlantic and has arms that can be remotely controlled to cut cables or perform other manoeuvres to release a stuck vessel, the operator said.
Once found, Victor could hook the Titan to a ship using the U.S. Navy’s Flyaway Deep Ocean Salvage System (FADOSS), a lift system designed to recover objects weighing up to 27.2 tonnes from depths of 6,000 metres.
