R.R.M.S. Submarine for Sale
(Rapid Response Manned Submersible)

The working environment within the RRMS (Rapid Resopnse Manned Submersible), does not require the use of scuba regulators and masks inside the cockpit, which in turn allows for excellent communications, unrestricted visibility and operation of various electronic systems.

The unique ability to carry a large array of sophisticated mission specific systems along with the ability to exit the vehicle at depth, provide the user with rapid response manned intervention, data recovery and pilot comfort and safety.

Utilizing ambient pressure submarine technology along with strategic alliance partners, this R.R.M.S. Two Diver Sub is a state of the art, shallow water, security platform. The RRMS provides a rapidly deployable, manned submersible platform to which *optional equipment could be added such as: Multi Frequency Digital Imaging Sonar, Cameras using Real Time Video Enhancement, Hull Scanning Sonar, GPS, Underwater Wireless Communications, Onboard Computer for viewing Enhanced Sonar Images and a Sub Mounted Fly-Out ROV System.

(*Optional equipment not included in listed price.)
