The Indian Navy will receive the first of two submarine rescue systems (SRS) from JFD, a UK-based company in March 2018.

The first of two SRSs will be delivered to the Indian Navy in March 2018, senior IN officials were quoted as saying by Jane’s on 20 November.

JFD was awarded a £193m contract by the Indian Navy for the provision and long term support of its submarine rescue capability in 2015. The contract includes the design, build and supply of two complete submarine rescue systems, and a 25-year all inclusive annual maintenance contract.

JFD has to provide two complete fly-away submarine rescue systems, including Deep Search and Rescue Vehicles (DSRV), Launch and Recovery Systems (LARS) equipment, Transfer Under Pressure (TUP) systems, and all logistics and support equipment required to operate the service.

The equipment is being designed, manufactured, integrated and tested by JFD prior to shipping to India for final commissioning and trials.
