DRASS at CRF – Coordinator of Rescue Forces Course 2023

DRASS was invited by ISMERLO and the Italian Navy to attend the fourth edition of the CRF (Coordinator of Rescue Forces) training course in Taranto.

The lesson held by DRASS Program manager Davide D’Alessio (former Italian Navy Submariner) was dedicated and focused on the new generation Submarine Rescue and Intervention System, under development and production for the Italian Navy named S.A.V.E.R..

The CRF course is a response to an important need raised by the Submarine Escape and Rescue Working Group (SMERWG), with the aim of preparing specialists who could be called upon to assist or operate in a submarine rescue operation as Rescue Forces Coordinators. Representatives from ten different nations were in attendance at this specialized training course.

Areas covered included Submarine Escape and Rescue (SMER) related systems, publications, alerting procedures, knowledge of rescue and intervention assets peculiarities and capabilities, human and psychological factors, scenario training, etc. Course instructors representing subject matter expertise within doctrine, operations, design and engineering, logistics, state-of-the-art technologies, etc.

A special thanks to ISMERLO & Italian Navy for the opportunity to participate, again this year, in this momentous event.
