The Indian Navy has inducted its new Deep Sea Submarine Rescue System into service at the Naval Dockyard in Mumbai.

The system is capable of undertaking rescue from a disabled submarine up to 650m depth. The system, which can be operated by a crew of three, can rescue 14 personnel from a disabled submarine at one time and can operate in extreme sea conditions.

The rescue system will be operated and deployed by the crew of Indian Navy's newly formed Submarine Rescue Unit (West) from its base in Mumbai. From there it can be deployed to the nearest mobilisation port by air/land or sea to provide rapid rescue to submarines in distress.
