China’s new manned submersible Shenhai Yongshi, or deep-sea warrior, will be delivered to clients on Nov. 30, cctv.com reported Wednesday.
The sub, which is one of the most advanced in the world, is set to serve maritime scientific research for the next 30 years.
The advanced, intelligent control system of the sub will be applied in other submersibles currently under construction.
Like driverless vehicles, the deep-sea warrior is able to move in the sea automatically, said Zhu Puqiang, a person in charge of researching the control system.
The advanced system will play an important role in controlling China’s domestically developed manned deep-sea submersible which is capable of reaching depths of more than 10,000 meters. The submersible is set for deep-sea explorations in 2020 in the Pacific Ocean’s Mariana Trench in 2020.
