Despliegan un robot sumergible en la búsqueda del Titan

By Jordi Bou

June 22, 2023 - Un robot francés capaz de sumergirse 6.000 metros bajo el agua podría ser crucial en la búsqueda del sumergible turístico desaparecido durante un descenso al naufragio del Titanic.

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.
