Hollywood filmmaker James Cameron, who directed the 1997 blockbuster Titanic, told the BBC that the team who created the submarine that exploded, killing five people, had “cut corners.”

Cameron employed a different technique for the Deepsea Challenger submersible mission in the Pacific in 2012, which brought him down to the deepest known oceanic trench of 10,912m (35,800ft).

The Titanic wreck is 3,810m (12,500ft) below the surface.

Cameron claimed he suspected a tragedy when he discovered the sub had lost both navigation and communication at the same time.

“I could feel it in my bones what had happened.” If the sub’s electronics, communication system, and tracking transponder all fail at the same time, the sub is toast.”

When he learned the sub had gone missing on Monday, he added, “I immediately got on the phone to some of my contacts in the deep submersible community.”

“Within an hour, I had the following information. They were on their way down. They were at 3,500 metres (11,483 feet), on their way to the bottom at 3,800 metres.

“Their communications were lost, navigation was lost – and said instantly, can’t lose communications and navigation together without an extreme, highly energetic catastrophic event.” “The first thought that came to mind was an implosion.”

A US military official told the BBC’s partner CBS News on Thursday that the military had detected “an acoustic anomaly consistent with implosion” immediately after the Titan lost communication with the surface.

“Any expert who weighs in on this, including Mr Cameron, will also admit that they were not there for the design of the sub, for the engineering of the sub, the building of the sub and certainly not for the rigorous test programme that the sub went through.”

He said anyone venturing Titanic wreck be fully risks, as “very dangerous site”.
