Union Minister Kiren Rijiju has unveiled images of the cutting-edge submersible known as ‘Matsya 6000.’

This submersible is part of India’s ambitious ‘Samudrayaan Mission,’ which is being developed by the National Institute of Ocean Technology (NIOT) in Chennai, under the auspices of the Ministry of Earth Sciences.

India is setting its sights on a groundbreaking endeavour to send a team of three individuals to explore the ocean’s depths, plunging to depths of 6 kilometers. The objective is to conduct deep-sea exploration and biodiversity assessments.

During his visit to NIOT in Chennai, Earth Sciences Minister Rijiju inspected the progress of the submersible and provided updates on India’s inaugural manned deep ocean mission.

Key details about Matsya 6000:

  1. The ‘Matsya 6000’ submersible boasts a typical operational endurance of 12 hours, with the capacity to extend to 96 hours in emergencies to ensure the safety of human occupants. The mission is slated for completion by the year 2026.
  2. This manned submersible will facilitate direct human observation in the deep ocean, aiding in the exploration of valuable mineral resources such as Nickel, Cobalt, Rare Earths, and Manganese, while also enabling the collection of samples for analysis.
  3. This mission promises innovations in underwater engineering that will benefit areas including asset inspection, tourism, and the promotion of oceanic knowledge.
