Showcase Capability

James Cameron's Deepsea Challenger Submarine - Pilot Sphere internal lining.

LSM was approached by the design and build team to manufacture the carbon fibre internal lining of the Pilot Sphere, the pilot’s home in the submersible. This ‘home’, which measures 1092mm (43 inches) in diameter, is filled with electronics and life-support equipment. It is so small that the pilot’s legs are tightly bent and he could barely move his arms. In comparison, the overall length of the Deepsea Challenger is similar to that of a stretched limousine.

The pre-preg carbon fibre materials used were selected by LSM because of their low fire/smoke/toxicity and low heat release characteristics, a requirement which formed part of the designer’s safety specification.

LSM works with its clients in collaboration with leading edge partners and suppliers to provide responsive, flexible, cost effective, innovative solutions to meet and exceed the most demanding of specifications and working environments.
LSM provides you access to unprecedented Experience, Quality, Innovation, Dependability and Client Satisfaction with the personal touch of dealing directly with the company owners to deliver the ultimate solution to your most challenging requirements.
