The first Manned Submersible in Taiwan

Taiwan Ocean Research Institute of the National Applied Research Laboratories, National Defense University, the Jong Shyn Shipbuilding Group,  the CSBC Corporation Taiwan, Metal Industries Research & Development Center, and NSYSU cooperated and jointly announced their investment in the research and development of the first manned submersible constructed in Taiwan and their partnership in cultivating talent in relevant industrial fields. Through the cooperation of the industry, academia, and research, the six major units have collaborated to form the Manned Submersible Development Alliance, which plans to construct a manned underwater vehicle (submersible) within five years for scientific and technological research, and actively cultivate relevant talents. This is expected to accelerate the progress of ongoing marine green-energy projects in Taiwan, including offshore wind power, Kuroshio power plants, and deep ocean water as well as support military joint training, military survey, and underwater rescue.
