In a statement made by the US Coast Guard officials, it was shared that a remotely controlled underwater vehicle reached a wreck signal in the area where the last signal was received from the submarine that disappeared in the Atlantic Ocean on Sunday.
Officials stated that it is not yet clear whether the wreck belongs to the Titan submarine, and that “experts are evaluating the information”.
Sahil Günvenlik North America unit announced on Twitter that it has deployed a remote-controlled underwater vehicle called L’Atalante to the region for search and rescue efforts.
There was no news from the remote control vehicle for a while.
Titan’s communication with the ship “Polar Prince” was cut off 1 hour and 45 minutes after the dive. Under water, where GPS did not work, the submarine was guided by messages from the ship on the surface.
In the statement made by the US Coast Guard, the Canadian military search plane detected some sounds under the water that they thought might belong to the submarine; It was stated that the voices in question were heard at 30-minute intervals. However, it was not certain whether these sounds belonged to the submarine.
The US Navy has also prepared a lifting system that can tow heavy submarine objects to a depth of 6,000 meters to aid rescue efforts if the submarine is found.
Experts predicted that the oxygen in the touristic submarine, which has not been heard since Sunday, will run out as of today.
It was stated that the ship uses the Starlink satellite internet system owned by Elon Musk’s company SpaceX.
