JFD successfully completes two weeks of rigorous but extremely successful submarine rescue exercises off the coast of Western Australia. JFD partnered with the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) to conduct the annual “Black Carillon” exercise which tests Australia’s submarine rescue system in a series of scenarios designed to replicate a real-life submarine rescue emergency.
