Iran builds unmanned radio-controlled submarine


An Iranian scientist has built unmanned radio-controlled submarine with the ability of information exchange five meters under water.

“The submarine is in the initial phase of construction and it will be turned into a smart one in the second phase,” said the project director, Reza Mohammadi.

A camera can be installed in front of the submarine, transferring images. The camera can send pictures out from water if connected online.

The submarine can also go down under water by five meters with the speed of two meter per second.

The project manager continued that the submarine is armed with a “balance tank” which prevents additional movements underwater.

The submarine is equipped with a system warning low battery, he said adding, “the newly-built device was tested in sweet water, but it can move in any kind of water.”
