Titan is the world’s only carbon-fiber submersible capable of diving five people to 4,000 meters (13,123 feet). It is the submersible we use to survey the wreck of the RMS Titanic during our annual Titanic Expeditions. Titan’s unique ability to carry five people allows for multiple Mission Specialists, scientists and content experts to share a once-in-a-lifetime experience diving in the deep ocean.
The state-of-the-art vessel, designed and engineered by OceanGate Inc. in collaboration experts from NASA, Boeing and the University of Washington, made its subsea debut in 2018. Through the innovative use of modern materials, Titan is lighter, more spacious, and more comfortable than any other deep-diving submersible exploring the ocean today.
OceanGate Inc.’s Cyclops 1 submersible can transport up to five people to depths of 500 meters (1,640 feet). Not only has Cyclops 1 served as an observation platform for dozens of research projects, expeditions, and training dives, but it also served as a fully functional prototype throughout the development of Titan, acting as a test platform for software, technology, and equipment.
