SUBMARINE RESCUE SYSTEM (SRS)
The Submarine Rescue System (SRS) is based on the Submarine Rescue Capsule SR11, designed for the rescue of up to 9 DISSUB personnel and crewed by 2 operators. The SR11 capsule is composed of three independent sub-systems: the upper lock, the lower trunk and the ballast water tanks. The maximum allowable internal pressure is 5 bar / 6ATA. The maximum depth rating of the SRS is 300msw.
The Upper Lock is designed to accommodate crew and operators. It is fitted with all the necessary equipment for the control of the bell and communications with the support vessel. The lower trunk of the SR11 is a cylindrical tunnel representing the transfer lock between the upper lock and the DISSUB. The hydraulic winch, which pulls the bell to the submarine mating platform, is installed outside the lower trunk
