Third Generation - Concept of operations

JFD’s Third Generation Submarine Rescue System concept is fully adaptable and customisable to customer requirements. The system is small, light, and can be quickly transported and mobilised onto a wide variety of ships, whilst providing a highly effective capability.

In order to maximum chances of a successful rescue, it is critical that the SRS is able to get to the location of the incident as quickly as possible.

The key to getting the 3rd generation system to location on time is its transportability. As a flyaway submarine rescue system, it can be maintained on shore and deployed via road and/or air, before being mobilised to a suitable Vessel of Opportunity (VOO) close to the DISSUB site.

ISO-standard transportable equipment begins load-out and transport to chosen airport. Equipment loaded onto aircraft utilising air handling equipment supplied as part of system.  Each aircraft takes two hours to load and departs when ready.  Each aircraft takes one-hour to unload onto 40’ ISO standard lorries and departs for MOPORT.  Assets are installed onto twist-lock bases of pre-engineered VOO and commissioned.  Following transit to datum and side-scan survey, ROV is launched to deploy tracking transponders.  Up to three pods may be delivered per ROV dive. Following pre-dive checks, the SRV is launched over the stern of the MOSHIP. SRV Pilot manipulates trim and thrust to manoeuvre into position and mate with DISSUB. Rescuees are transferred into the SRV under pressure equal to that of the DISSUB. SRV is aligned to TUP Transfer Manway prior to being clamped into position. Up to 90 rescuees receive staggered medical and decompression treatment across three triple-lock chambers. SRV performs multiple rescue cycles in order to return all DISSUB crew to the surface.
