pure living support systems
Oculus Systems is designing and developing systems that will support life in the form of growing food, purifying water, providing oxygen, power, lighting and shelter within our hyperbaric environments. The Hercules structures will provide the peace of mind you'll have by knowing all that it takes to sustain life is protected within the Hercules structures.
The Hercules is an underground construction system with modular units. That makes it the ultra DIY for designing your subterranean environment.
THE HERCULES STRUCTURE
It's Completely Modular
Modular components allow you to easily create a unique facility directed towards your needs. Check out these examples below!
Below are some pre-assembled units or structures using the Hercules components:
The Hercules Pod is a versatile unit designed for generators, power storage, control systems, bedrooms, kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms and so much more.
The Hercules Pod unit consists of a vertical access unit, tunnel section and an end cap and provides 77 square feet.
Additional tunnel sections can be included to expand your Pod to provide additional square feet.
The Hercules Studio is a 467 square foot structure that provides a 16 foot dome connected to three end capped tunnel sections.
The Hercules Studio consists of one vertical access unit, one 16' dome, six tunnel sections and three end caps.
MASSIVE WATER STORAGE
Water reclamation and recirculation system
Our structures can be modified to take in local water sources, purify the water and store it in the facilities' system which can then be made available to the local population above ground.
Mirrored structures create a very large water storage tank or cistern
OSI has proprietary methods of collecting and redirecting moisture from the enviroment back into the cisterns.
This self contained environment is easily assembled and accommodates the plumbing needed for watering and irrigation within the floor panels.
Every component of the Hercules structure can be mirrored below the identical piece to create a subterranean fish farm.
The same vented panels used to circulate the air within the upper domes and tunnels can also be used as vents to circulate the water within the cistern.
The cistern units can be built to accommodate the Oculus subterranean fish farm where isolated sections of the cistern can raise fish through their different development cycles.
The Hercules structures offer self-contained septic systems designed to accommodate the occupants of each subterranean structure.
The Oculus Septic Systems can be installed within the air-tight and water-tight Hercules structures while remaining accessible for maintenance and monitoring.
PLENTY OF POWER
OSI Power Systems can employ several methods of supplying power; solar, wind, hydro-electric or stay connected to the grid.
A smart, safe and secure method of collecting and storing energy.
In recent years the solar industry has experienced an increased demand in the storage of solar energy.
Oculus Systems has identified several products that accommodate a variety of new power storage solutions.
OSI POWER VAULTS
The OSI Power Vaults construction allows users to store and protect their battery systems from the weather in an air-tight, water-tight environment safely underground.
The OSI Power Vaults protect your battery system from weather conditions such as wind, rain, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, fire and lightning.
Power Vault (PV-3)
11’ W x 29’ L
162 interior sq ft
The electrical system for the units utilize a massive battery storage of 12 volt and 24 volt groups of batteries contained within the floor and walls to drive an inverted power supply delivering 110-120 volts to each of the units.
Lighting systems include LED and fiber optics. Fiber optic light pipes from the surface ensure a comfortably lit atmosphere in the daytime and when the sun goes down the cables can be infused with LED lighting.
All interior panels are white unless a printed graphic is specified. The reason for this is ambient lighting color can be independently controlled for mood per section.
OCUPONICS GROWING SYSTEM
Ocuponics describes the use of hardware and technology associated with the automation of hyperbaric plant growth. Ocuponics is a system that allows plants to be grown in a simulated native environment including regional barometric pressures and temperatures.
The Ocuponics growing system provides growers higher yields of more consistent product grown more efficiently without the need for pesticides.
Thanks to all of the advances in vertical growing systems the Hercules structures can accomodate acres and acres of hyperbaric growing.
A Hercules structure is capable of growing two acres of product within a fraction of an actual acre of land.
Each individual Hercules grow module can be isolated from other grow modules in order to modify the product with independent environments or to create staggered growth rates in order to create a consistant flow of product throughout the year. Automation is the key to supplying the future demands facing our global population.
Interior panels throughout the Hercules structure contain vents for circulating air and more.
Systems contained within the walls of a Hercules structure such as electrical, fiber optics, water, air circulation, heating and cooling are all accessible behind the interior panels. All systems contained within these panels are more easily accessed for occasional maintenance than any systems within the walls of a standard home.
When growing crops that require specific elevations within a Hercules structure be sure to include an ATM (atmospheric transition module) in your design so you can maintain specific barimetric growing pressures.
HERCULES UNDERGROUND STRUCTURES ARE
Hercules structures are fabricated with high impact, high strength multi-composite ribbed construction with steel reinforced gaskets..
Hercules structures are fire, flood, frost, hail, heat, rain, wind and earthquake resistant and will stand up to Mother Nature.
Hercules structures are air-tight, water-tight, self-contained, energy efficient and water efficient.
