JFD developing comms upgrade for NSRS
JFD, the world leading underwater capability provider serving the commercial and defence diving markets and part of James Fisher and Sons plc, has developed a fibre optic video and voice communications network upgrade to the NATO Submarine Rescue System (NSRS) and is waiting to conduct sea trials of the system. For the first time, the system will provide visual communications between the submarine rescue vehicle, the dive supervisor and the bridge commander, all from the vessel deck. This offering combines the heritage of JFD with the fibre optic technology from Fathom Systems (part of JFD), a leading provider of diver communications, for the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD).
JFD Australia - the trusted, proven and reliable supplier of the submarine rescue system to the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) for more than 12 years - is pleased to acknowledge a decade of successful participation in the yearly Black Carillon submarine rescue exercises off the coast of Western Australia.
JFD, the world-leading underwater capability provider serving the commercial and defence diving markets and part of James Fisher and Sons plc, has been progressing the build of three submarine rescue vehicles (SRVs) simultaneously; a world-first in submarine rescue.
