My students asked about the prop-less submarine propulsion system, so I explained the origin of its design as a flying submersible for maintenance of the floating power grid. Continue reading

Biomimetic Propless Submersible Propulsion

Icon for the displacement-propulsion submarine design.

Using a vessel’s buoyancy like a sailplane uses its height to generate forward movement, this system would be more efficient as a submerged vessel can use both positive and negative buoyancy in order to generate continuous forward motion by rising up and then sinking back down in slow gentle cycles.
