The AURORA 6S is a 6 crew (1 pilot and 5 passengers) submarine, like no other of its kind. Designed and created by SEAmagine Hydrospace Corporation to be the "Submarine" that can be used for any situation. From underwater exploration all the way to filming underwater movies or documentaries. It has a maximum depth rating of 300m to 1000m and is used by companies such as Nation Geographic, BBC, and many more for underwater filming. The Aurora-6 is, thus far, the crowning jewel of their never-ending drive to create the ultimate underwater experience for sea-adventurers via this new vessel’s unbelievable field of view, spacious environment, exceptionally easy boarding and exiting arrangement, and its unparalleled safety and comfort. It features state of the art technology in the world of submersibles.
Entering the Aurora 6 and exploring the incredible nature that can be found in our oceans will leave you breathless. The design of the submarine allows for an unobstructed field of view for the pilot and passengers. The interior of the cabin is made from high-quality materials like carbon fiber and leather for maximum comfort and good ergonomics.
Build quality and performance
The submarine's main cabin is made of a special alloy that offers twice the strength of stainless steel and one of the best corrosion-resistant metal that exists today. This special metal makes possible to have a very large entry hatch compared to any other submarine in its category.
The Aurora 6S is powered by six powerful propulsion thrusters capable of outputting a top speed of 3-knots. The movement is controlled by a single joystick allowing unmatched agility that offers smooth starting and stopping.
Lastly but most importantly are the safety features. The Aurora 6S is designed to be positively buoyant at all times when underwater. The vessel will gently rise up and float to the surface. This is controlled two vertically oriented propeller thrusters that push the sub down and control the depth. If the submarine losses power of the propulsion system turns off it will start rising up.
The Aurora-6 is equipped with the latest subsea technology for underwater communication, sonar, navigation, robotic manipulator arm, powerful underwater lights, and HD camera filming.
All of these features and more than 25-years of submersible expertise make the Aurora 6S one of the most capable and secure submarines in the market.
