New and Improved Gearbox design

This year’s gearbox is a redesign of our existing gearbox, with improved robustness and reduced size compared to the previous one. Much like the old gearbox, this one is designed to provide power to two concentric, counter rotating output shafts. This in turn, powers the contra-rotating propellers which provide thrust for the submarine.
