 A robot capable of going 20,000 feet deep joined the Titan rescue

A French robot joined the search for the missing submarine Titan. It can go up to 20,000 feet under water.

On Thursday, a French 'research boat' brought this robot named 'Victor 6000' to the scene. And it can do other things besides cut the cable using the arm remotely to free the stuck ship.

The missing submarine was heading towards the wreck of the Titanic, which sank in 1912, which lies at a depth of 3,810 meters or 12,500 feet in the Atlantic Ocean.

Olivier Lefort, director of France's state-owned research firm Eyeframer, which operates the robot, said 25 sailors are in charge of operating the Victor 6000 robot, which is capable of working "up to 72 hours straight".

"Victor shows the search situation live with all its video components." -- said Lofar. He was also part of the team that found the wreckage of the Titanic in 1985.

“Its arm can also be used in submarine rescue. An example would be to cut a submarine's cable or the part that is stuck under it."

Victor is not the only 'Remote Operated Vehicle (Rove)' called in to recover the submarine Titan that went missing on Sunday.

Such vehicles arrived on the scene with the help of the first few ships responding to the rescue earlier in the week.

As the name suggests, they are controlled from a ship on the surface of the sea. And cameras and lights attached to the ship send various 'real-time' images.

According to the British media Sky News, this search is carried out in the respective places based on the words selected through various 'snow buoys'.

These devices are designed to detect objects using sonar. And they were installed by Canada's "P-3" aircraft.

Once the devices are deployed, they are connected to radio transmitters floating on the ocean surface. And receivers that detect sound waves are attached to a cable and lowered into the water.

Officials said that even the cases of knocking noise they detected did not yield positive results. Snowboys can play an important role in reducing this search space, experts say.

Introduction to 'Fados'

No other rove is likely to go as deep as Victor.

However, Victor is unlikely to be able to bring the Titan to the surface on his own, so the help of a surface ship will be required, Sky reported.

The search team may take the help of the Flyway Deep Ocean Salvage System (FADOS) to retrieve the submarine. It arrived at the scene on Thursday along with several other rescue vessels called Horizon Arctic.

Its powerful levers and cables have enough power to lift submarines to the surface. And it can lift up to 27,200 kg from the deep sea.
