OF THE SEAS
The development of Omer 7 began in the fall of 2007 with the study of different concepts. Following this exhaustive work where several possibilities were considered, the team decided to embark on the manufacture of a second submarine without propeller, but this time a two-seater.
The team was looking to register for the records in the only category in which the club had not yet participated. The concept of oscillating wings from top to bottom which gave exceptional results for Omer 6 was therefore recovered. There is however a high level work done by all members of the club, many of whom were graduates at the time, in order to optimize all the components manufactured and used in this submarine using several computer tools state-of-the-art including finite element analysis.
Omer 7 experienced its water baptism during the tenth International Submarine Race in Bethesda, Maryland. The efforts were rewarded with a very enviable speed record of 5,133 knots (9.51 km / h) and the first prize for innovation.
WHERE IS IT NOW?
Omer 7 was bought from the school by members of his team.
