Mission Statement, History and Description
The Omer club has been designing human powered submarines since 1990.
Omer 11 will be the first submarine to have two different propulsion system that we will change between the races. The first system will be a standard propeller system. It will be equipped with pre-cambered fins with a variable pitch controlled from the inboard computer. It will also be equipped with a non-propeller system similar to the one of Omer X. It goes without saying that this new system will be completely redesigned in order to reduce the weight and optimize power.
Following the experience of our pilots in the past competitions, it is obvious that controlling a submarine is a fastidious task that prevents the pilot from giving all the power he could. Omer 11 will be equipped with an inboard computer powered by Linux and multiple captors allowing the pilot to focus on pedaling and not on controlling the submarine.
