JFD, the world leading underwater capability provider serving the commercial and defence diving markets, and part of James Fisher and Sons plc, has successfully completed a comprehensive submarine rescue exercise to mobilise the entire NATO Submarine Rescue System (NSRS). The exercise, titled Golden Arrow, provided vital hands-on training that further optimises the crew’s ability to conduct safe and effective rescue operations, ensuring the capability remains ready to seamlessly respond to an incident anywhere in the world.
JFD has successfully completed critical subsea mating exercises, marking a key milestone in the sea acceptance trials of the various assets comprising the second of the two Third Generation Submarine Rescue Flyaway Systems delivered to the Indian Navy. Through the course of the trials, and in close partnership with the Indian Navy, JFD carried out multiple dives including underwater mating operations with a bottomed submarine and conducting a safe transfer of personnel from the submarine to the Deep Search and Rescue Vehicle (DSRV), ensuring there is a robust and effective submarine rescue capability in place.
JFD are delighted to be leading the way in industry having successfully delivered the first of its kind Technical Showcase in collaboration with the AFRC (Advance Forming Research Centre) earlier this week.
