Indian Navy to receive first of two submarine rescue systems in March 2018

The Indian Navy (IN) will receive the first of two submarine rescue systems (SRSs) from UK-based company JFD in March 2018, senior IN officials told Jane’s on 20 November.

The INR4 billion (USD62 million) deal for the supply of the two third-generation, 30-tonne SRSs was signed in mid-2015, and includes deep submergence and rescue vessels (DSRVs), launch and recovery systems (LARSs), as well as transfer-under-pressure (TUP) systems.

In a 17 November statement, JFD, which did not identify the IN as the recipient of the two SRSs, stated that the contract also includes all the support equipment and logistics required to operate the system in addition to a 25-year all-inclusive after-sales service support programme.
