Lloyd’s Register to Certify DeepFlight Submarines

DeepFlight has entered into a working relationship with Lloyd’s Register (LR) to certify DeepFlight personal submarines in accordance with LR’s rules for the construction and classification of submersibles and diving systems.

DeepFlight has re-designed the concept of a personal submarine through its use of composite materials, and by applying the principles and dynamics of flight underwater.

DeepFlight submarines will be the first composite-hulled personal submarines to undergo certification.

In addition to working with Lloyd’s Register, DeepFlight has also engaged with the US Coast Guard. Both organizations provide expert third party validation on the innovation and safety of DeepFlight craft.

Adam Wright, CEO of DeepFligh,t stated: “We are delighted to be working with Lloyd’s Register to certify our DeepFlight submarines. This relationship validates our efforts to join the automobile, aviation and other industries, in utilizing composite materials to make safer craft. We see our work with LR as a great leap forward in submarine innovation, allowing us to open the oceans for personal exploration.”

Mark Daley, president, Lloyd’s Register Americas Marine and Offshore, said: “Lloyd’s Register is proud to be working with DeepFlight to provide certification of this innovative concept. This industry first has required input and thought leadership from a breadth of Lloyd’s Register’s experience. Working with the DeepFlight team and the US Coast Guard, we are excited to be part of this project in realizing personal underwater flight.”
