The NATO Submarine Escape and Rescue Working Group (SMERWG) encourages the development and implementation of military standardization within the global Submarine Escape, Rescue and Abandonment (SMERAS) community. This includes, but is not limited to, techniques and training methods, presenting and recommending new equipment and communications related to submarine emergency situations.
NATO SMERWG is held over 4 days and is open to NATO and other non-NATO submarine operating nations wishing to develop or upgrade a SMERAS capability. Around 34 nations participate, sending 120 delegates who share information and discuss their SMERAS activities.
The SMERWG brings together submarine operating nations who are looking to develop their SMERAS capability and Industry that can assist with this development.
