Optional, additional and spare equipment for your Triton submersible.
Basic Spares Package
All such parts considered critical have been included in Triton’s Basic Spares Package. Man-rated penetrators, essential equipment such as thrusters and underwater telephone components are included alongside items such as replacement fuses, circuit breakers and switches for critical systems.
Offshore Spares Package
In situations where diving operations are frequent and minimal down time is preferred, Triton recommends upgrading to a package with a more substantial spares quantity. The spare parts offered in the Offshore Package include an extra thruster as well as spares for non-critical items and systems with more modest lead times.
Expedition Spares Package
For the dive operator who is routinely diving in remote areas, a complete set of spare parts is essential. Triton has created the ultimate spares package that includes critical and non-critical replacement parts. Every attempt has been made to assemble a package that will best ensure a challenging dive project is successful.
Triton can supply the equipment essential to integrate seamlessly with your chosen vessel. This equipment typically includes:
- HP Air Compressor with breathing quality filtration system
- Battery Chargers
- Oxygen transfer or booster pump
- HP Oxygen Storage Cylinders
- Vacuum pump with nitrogen backfill system
Every Triton submersible is delivered with a robust package of standard equipment. The majority of buyers elect to add additional, optional equipment.

To ensure the safe and effective operation of Triton submersibles, the following additional equipment with a value in excess of $200,000 has been included at no extra charge:
USBL Tracking System with Acoustic Modem
The Ultra Short Base Line (USBL) tracking system uses two-way acoustic communication to calculate the relative position of a surface vessel-mounted transceiver to an underwater vehicle-mounted beacon and allows the submersible to be tracked underwater.
Triton’s exclusive Worldview Navigation System
Triton’s proprietary ‘WorldView’ navigation system maintains live tracking and positional data of the submersible, host vessel and other points of interest. Using GPS from the host vessel and USBL tracking, pilots can monitor the submersible’s position, dive repeatedly to a point of interest and even track other vehicles.
The Teledyne Blueview imaging sonar is specifically designed to increase operating effectiveness in low and/or zero visibility conditions with both mid-range detection and close- range identification capabilities from moving platforms. Fitted aboard Triton submersibles it enhances the pilot’s situational awareness, assists in locating hazards and aids orientation when supplementing the onboard chart plotter.
All required support equipment
Includes oxygen booster, compressor, battery chargers, submersible cover, specialty tools, hoses, whips and cables.
While the following equipment is considered optional, we have found that these particular instruments have repeatedly demonstrated their value regardless of the mission profile. From operating in crystal clear waters of the tropics to zero visibility in Alaska, to the darkest depths found mid-ocean to the icy cold Antarctic Peninsula, this equipment is exactly what any serious submersible team would need to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for both the submersible operators, guests and the surface control group.
Full Spectrum Chirp Technology Sounder / GPS
Allows the pilot to see a virtual representation of the bottom in over 5,000 feet of water. Knowing altitude off bottom as well as seeing the contour itself is crucial to safe navigation. Being able to see fish, obstacles, ship wrecks and other submersibles beneath are also clear advantages.
Doppler Velocity Log
A DVL provides a variety of instrumentation capabilities in a single package including velocity (both vertical and horizontal) heading, depth, altitude, temperature and even current speed and direction. A DVL measures speed relative to the bottom provided the submersible is in water depth within the capability of the unit.
A manipulator will allow you to pick up objects while you are diving. The pilot can collect samples, set video or scientific equipment on the bottom, hold onto an outcrop to remain stationary or sever lines or other entanglement hazards.
Sub-mounted mini ROV
Shipwreck and cave penetrations for reconnaissance and videography have shown that sub mounted ROVs can be highly useful.
Hydrophone technology enables you to hear ambient ocean sounds.
This ability can easily be used for scientific purposes as well as the pure enjoyment of listening to the ocean. This becomes especially interesting in the presence of ocean mammals.
