NASA’s Titan Submarine (Titan Sub) will be a fully autonomous, highly capable science craft that will allow a complete exploration of what exists beneath the waves on another world, in this case Saturn’s Titan moon. As such no one has yet envisioned what such a craft might look like, how it would operate or if it could be built; this is the conceptual mission design work we propose with Titan Sub. The Titan Sub addresses NASA’s strategic goals by exploring the Titan environment which could hold clues to how Earth and life formed, it will create new technologies in the form of a semi-autonomous planetary submersible which could be extended to other planetary oceans.
