Rescue seat certification

JFD provides submarine rescue seat certification to validate its ability to safely mate with submarine rescue vehicles.

JFD's submarine rescue seat certification process demonstrates that the rescue seat is designed, manufactured and maintained in accordance with the dimensional and structural requirements of the most current NATO standard.

JFD’s certification process will recognise either full compliance or non compliance to the requirements ANEP/MNEP 85/85.1 and the ability to safely mate with submarine rescue vehicles.

All rescue seat certification is conducted in alignment to ANEP/MNEP 85 & 85.1.

ANEP/MNEP 85.1 describes the survey process for rescue seat certification. It also provides specific details of a technical data package which ideally should be held by a submarine operating nation for every submarine they control.

If held, this data package would be supplied to the rescue asset operators to assess the rescue seat in order to facilitate mating with a submarine. As part of the rescue seat certification process JFD will provide a full, standard compliant technical data package relating specially to the design and capability of the surveyed submarine.

 

 

JFD’s certification process will recognise either full compliance or non compliance to the requirements ANEP/MNEP 85/85.1 and the ability to safely mate with the listed submarine rescue vehicles (SRVs) in the table below. JFD can tailor the certification process to meet specific customer requirements or for other rescue capabilities not listed below whilst remaining in the boundaries of the requirements.

 

SRV Nation Max Depth

LR5 (DSAR-1)

 Australia  400msw

DSAR-5

 South Korea  500msw

DSAR-6

 Singapore  500msw

NSRS SRV-1

 NSRS  610msw
URF  Sweden  450msw

 

 

Following receipt of the prerequisite documentation, JFD would then carry out the following tasks:

  • Computer modelling
  • Physical survey
  1. Rescue seat external dimensions
  2. Rescue seat plate thickness
  3. Rescue seat plate flatness
  4. Rescue seat operation / obstructions
  5. Hold down point / turnbuckles (if fitted)
  6. Additional ttings etc
  • Quality assurance
  • Outcomes and documentation
  • Delivery
  • Assistance with owner discussions

 

JFD’s surveys can be broken down into five types depending on the submarine rescue seat being surveyed. Each will utilise one or more of the parts described above. Survey types are described within this table:
