Indian Navy inducts its first Deep Submergence Rescue Vehicle

Indian Navy inducts its first Deep Submergence Rescue Vehicle

The Indian Navy has inducted its first Deep Submergence Rescue Vehicle (DSRV) System at the Naval Dockyard in Mumbai.

DSRV

DSRV is used to rescue crew members stranded in submarines that get disabled. The Indian Navy joins a select group of naval forces in the world that boasts of this niche capability.

The DSRV can be operated at a depth of 650 meters and can hold around 15 people.

The Indian Navy in March 2016 had commissioned two DSRVs, the second will deployed at the Eastern Naval Command in Visakhapatnam.

The induction of the DSRV marks the culmination of years of effort of the Indian Navy in acquiring this niche submarine rescue capability.

Why Indian Navy require rescue vehicles?

The Indian Navy currently operates submarines of the Sindhughosh, Shishumar, Kalvari Classes as well as nuclear powered submarines.

The operating medium and the nature of operations undertaken by submarines expose them to high degree of inherent risk.

In such an eventuality, traditional methods of search and rescue at sea are ineffective for a disabled submarine.

To overcome this capability gap the Navy has acquired a third generation, advanced Submarine Rescue System considering of a Non-tethered Deep Submergence Rescue Vehicle (DSRV) and its associated equipment.
