In developing Project Neptune’s propulsion system, the teams were challenged to create a submersible that dives as an Aston Martin drives; with a comfort and potency that is endlessly enjoyable.
Triton worked with Aston Martin to develop a propulsion system that maintained the level of fine-grained precision Triton submersibles are renowned for, while providing the unprecedented level of performance desired by Aston Martin. Project Neptune features four times the power-to-weight ratio of Triton’s flagship Professional-level submersible.
Tight integration between propulsion, trim, and control systems allowed the engineering teams to gift Project Neptune agile, dynamic handling characteristics. Unlike typical Triton submersibles which favour a neutral, flat dive attitude, Project Neptune has been engineered to tilt as it dives and carve smooth, sweeping arcs as it turns. These characteristics provide an exhilarating sense of connection, an important a deliberate echo of Aston Martin’s performance sports cars.
