DeepFlight Super Falcon 3S


The DeepFlight Super Falcon 3S is a pilot + 2 passenger submarine expressly designed for tourism and to provide the unique experience of underwater flight. DeepFlight partners with resorts and water sports operators to offer guests exhilarating underwater excursions -- from a slow, balletic flight alongside marine mammals, to a cruise over reefs and shipwrecks.

It uses Mbed OS v5.7 running on 10 instances of the STM32F4 chipset.

Favourite features of Mbed were:

  • Drag and drop bin files to program the nodes has been hugely useful because the electronics are deeply buried in a pressurised environment submerged in oil.
  • The Mbed middle layer takes care of the RTOS, HW configuration and communication allowing development speed to increase immensely, enabling us to put resources on the higher level application to make the sub operate.
  • Mbed has a prominent community. Their online presence was good, active, quick to reply and even got responses from Mbed staff. That level of response is not very common. We felt it was a big positive.
  • Mbed also has modules you can just use off the shelf.
