A team from the Univ of Michigan joined with teams from other countries and other universtities in the 14th biennial International Submarine Race at the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division in West Bethesda Maryland. The goal is to demonstrate a human powered submarine that can navigate an underwater obstacle course as quickly as possible. These craft typically reach speeds of 5-6 knots, with the record being 7.4 knots. Also, there is a award for the best innovation in the design.
The competitiion will run from June 25-30. I hope to post an update of how well our team did.
