FICTION Operation Neptune - An advanced nuclear submarine is hijacked by environmental extremists intent on stopping pollution from the burning of fossil fuels. The extremists torpedo a number of oil wells as part of a campaign to cause energy chaos, with bigger plans to come. If you enjoyed Under Siege or The Hunt for Red October, this is a must for you.










Autonomous hydrographic mapping ship proposal



The key to accurate hydrographic mapping is continuous monitoring, for which the Bluefish ZCC platform, presently under development, is a robotic ocean workhorse. Based on a stable SWASH hull this design is under development by a British company. The robot ship uses no diesel fuel to monitor the oceans autonomously (COLREGS compliant) at relatively high speed 24/7 and 365 days a year - only possible with the revolutionary (patent) energy harvesting system. The hullform is ideal for automatic release and recovery of ROVs or other salvage and rescue equipment. This vessel pays for itself in fuel saved every ten years.
