Graham Hawkes created the Deep Flight series of winged submersibles. He is a World renowned engineer in this feild. The first winged submersible was unveiled by Hawkes Ocean Technologies (H.O.T) in the late 1990’s.

Graham has designed a significant percentage of the manned and unmanned vehicles used by science and industry. Designes include the WASP and MANTIS Atmospheric Diving Suits, and many of the Remotely Operated Vehicles originally built by Deep Ocean Engineering.

Before the Deep Flight project, Graham Hawkes also designed the Deep Rover submersibles. These were featured in James Cameron’s 3D IMAX film, “Aliens of the Deep.”

HOT is currently designing and building submersibles and other deep sea technologies for private clients and superyachts.

The Company’s design and engineering office is located in the San Francisco Bay Area.
