    This is a fascinating approach to powering-up a submarine.

    A search for underwater vehicles discovered this interesting project out of Russia.

    Thanks, I thought I'd seen them all but I missed that one.

    Too bad there aren't more details.

    The website says that they are seeking financial partners. My guess is that even though they state that they have a collection of patents, it looks as if they are still playing it rather close to the vest until it goes into production.

    All those sneaky folks in foreign countries and all...

    I read it all thoroughly, including their skewed survey results.

    It dates back a few years. It's tied to a shipyard in Russia.

    Personaly, I think it's a great market but, it's a big challenge to get

    everything right.
