Russian Navy will receive remote-controlled underwater drone "Marlin-350"

Until the end of next year, the search and rescue forces of the Russian Navy will be replenished with 10 with the latest Marlin-350 remote-controlled unmanned vehicles (TNLA) capable of performing tasks at a depth of more than 300 m, reports press office Ministry of Defense

Russian Navy will receive remote-controlled underwater drone "Marlin-350"

"ТНПА" Марлин-350 "is developed and serially produced by the Russian company" Tethys Pro ". His tests confirmed all the characteristics and compliance with the technical requirements of the Russian Navy. The devices implemented advanced domestic technology and modern element base. "Marlin-350" corresponds to the latest global trends in the development of underwater vehicle engineering, ”the release says.

According to the press service of the TNPA, "it is planned to be used in search and rescue operations, in particular, for searching and inspecting emergency submarines." Also, "the device can be used to install hydroacoustic markers and lifting objects captured by the manipulator."

The "Marlin-350" TNPA is equipped with six propellers, with four horizontal ones arranged according to a vector diagram. Thanks to the original technical solution for building the control system, as well as the use of the modern element base, Marlin-350 allows to ensure high accuracy and speed of the control signals by the drivers (speed changes, reverse), which meets the highest requirements for search and rescue facilities of the new generation "- told in the department.

It is reported that “a thin, flexible optoelectric cable with low resistance to movement and close to zero buoyancy is used to connect the underwater vehicle and the surface module, and the data transmission system is designed in such a way that it allows you to connect many additional sensors and special equipment for underwater work and search” .

It is possible to install an additional high-resolution camera (Full HD), a multibeam sonar, altimeter, all-round sonar, underwater navigation system, single-stage manipulator, and other additional equipment on the device.

“The main advantage of the Marlin-350 TNPA is its high mobility, which is largely achieved by the ability to use this device from the board of any type of vessel. This is a quickly deployable, easy-to-operate system, which is important for tough search and rescue standards, ”the report says.

    You can only be happy !!!! But when the apparatus is created in Russia, on which there will be a purely Russian modern element base, I will probably go to the taiga for joy, and I will kiss every Russian birch. wink

      Hm, birch is not the most common tree in the taiga, but yes, it’s more convenient to kiss it, not to prick about coniferous thorns laughing

        Based on the combat concept of the US Navy (aircraft carriers, destroyers, airliners), today they are already required - underwater drone unmanned aerial vehicles.
        That is, the object is small-sized, difficult to detect, able to carry naval weapons.
        Russia has a military doctrine - defense mainly, such devices would be useful.

          Something tells you what is already there, just not yet disclosed.

        I agree. Birch grows on the outskirts of the taiga. But I did not promise anyone that I would go deep ... wassat wassat wassat wassat

      Here is a movie about him:

      There is not only an elementary base, but also a number of key components foreign, if that. Applied Acoustics Alpha, Micron DST, Macartney.

    Tethys is a good office, and there are not many rescue equipment.

    I wonder, And when will combat drones (or more precisely, submarines) do?
    so the idea is interesting when, together with a nuclear submarine, a dozen more UAVs are floating, in which case they can take on a torpedo instead of a nuclear submarine.

      Well, that’s what remote-controlled mine seekers have been doing for a long time, minesweeping is a military operation.

      The AN / BLQ-11 long-term mine reconnaissance system (LMRS) is used on American nuclear submarines. Autonomous mine system capable of operating at ranges of up to 200 km. or 40 hours of operation, average speed 7 km / h, maximum 12 km / h
      The REMUS 600 of the Norwegian company Kongsberg Maritime, is also used on US nuclear submarines, an AUA reconnaissance unit. It works either autonomously or through a fiber optic cable.

    correct the beginning, and then immediately think about football hi

    This is not a "drone", but a remotely controlled underwater vehicle, "drones" are called "autonomous unmanned underwater vehicles", the difference is the absence of a control cable.

    Regarding the resources of autonomy, they haven’t revealed anything yet, but for search and rescue operations, one must assume enough. True, if you do not highlight an object at a depth, why do you need a high-resolution camera. Well, okay, you can always find fault, they started the release, they will take into account the flaws and there will be happiness.
