Triton Submarines

Triton builds superlative submersibles for discerning individuals and demanding professionals. They are built of the finest materials. The industry’s clearest view is achieved through Triton’s premium-grade, optically-perfect acrylic, offering the most intimate connection with our ocean. Our interiors are unlike any other. They are the most comfortable, ergonomic and beautifully hand-finished. Clients for whom reliability and dependability are key, overwhelmingly choose Triton. Our subs are engineered by the only manufacturer to achieve Full Ocean Depth certification. No submersible manufacturer understands the deep ocean like Triton. We work hard to ensure that our customers remain as satisfied today as they were on their first dive. Clients enjoy after-sales and technical support for the world’s most experienced submersible engineers and operations teams.

Nemo & Nomad are 1000/2 Triton submersibles, rated to 1000 feet of depth and able to carry two people on each dive.

When choosing a company for submersible experience and/or training, always make sure that all personnel is competent, certified, and appropriately experienced. Our submersible team has years of regular experience and are all appropriately trained in each position they are assigned, as per the Fundamentals of Submersible Operations and Piloting, including Triton “unit specific” factory training.

Tracking Subs During Dives?

During mission or test dives, our surface support crew must have the submersibles’ locations at all times. To accomplish this task, Global Sub Dive’s team utilizes a Tracklink 1500 USBL (ultra-short baseline) acoustics tracking system. Our Tracklink systems has a fully integrated high speed acoustic communication capability. It utilizes modern digital signal processing techniques and possesses a state of the art digital signal processor (DSP) that helps track the submersible from launching to retrieval.
