This it is a small submarine of the type ROV (Vehículo Operado Remotamente) who even counts on a camera Web.

The first successfully developed submarine ship was a boat of oars done of wood covered with leather. It was constructed in England towards 1620 by the Dutch inventor Cornelis Drebbel. According to chronicles of the time, this boat transported to twelve rowers and several passengers in a series of trips under the Thames river, of several hours of duration. In addition, Drebbel used maintained air tubes in the surface of the water by floaters, to assure the necessary provision oxygen to the boat while this one was under the water.

The first submarine used in a military operation had egg form and it only transported a person. The invented Turtle and in the decade of 1770 by the American engineer David Bushnell was called. This ship was driven by two devices similar to screws that were made work of form manual: one submerged when a valve allowed to enter the water of sea a ballast tank and it rose when the water was expelled by a pump manual. The ship On guard stayed vertical thanks to some lead ballasts. As it did not have any oxygen source while it was under the surface, it only could submerge during half an hour. During the war of American Independence bankrupt against a British boat anchored in the port of New York was used in an attack.

The image down shows the finished and ready submarine to us to be operated. Alongside the minicamera can be seen Web that we used.

Here the ready submarine can be seen to be used. It has some skates of stainless steel tube.
The camera that is used in this submarine.
Four motors are used miniature with their respective helices for aue can be commanded the mini-submarine without problems.
The camera is placed in a turned plastic support.
For the construction of this submarine plastic PVC is used. In the photo the cables of the lights notice that are Leds of high brightness.
The motors are due to cover because they are not waterproof. Rubber or some other method can be used so that the motors do not get wet. In our case we used plastic covers in accordance with each motor.

The almost finished submarine. Notice that transparency has been placed in the part of ahead a ac'rilico plastic cover that avoids the entrance of the water to the camera Web. The cable to control to the submarine must be of several meters of length. This submarine has only tried on until depths of 3 to 4 meters without problems. We hope to be able to go to the Titicaca lake to do that sumerga to a depth of up to 10 meters and soon going still deeper. It is to hope that this submarine serves to make quite serious explorations in the area of submarine archaeology.
