Visakhapatnam: The Deep Submergence Rescue Vehicle (DSRV) Complex was inaugurated at Visakhapatnam by Flag Officer Commanding in Chief, Eastern Naval Command Vice Admiral Atul Kumar Jain here on Wednesday.

The DSRV Complex is designed to accommodate the newly inducted Submarine Rescue System with state-of-the-art facilities to store the DSRV assets in a rescue-ready state. It consists of a submarine rescue vessel, a remote operations vehicle, side scan sonar and associated equipment. It also has Diver Decompression Chambers and hyperbaric medical equipment to decompress submariners after being rescued from a sunken submarine. The DSRV system can rapidly be mobilised by air or road to facilitate submarine rescue operations even at distant locations.

The Indian Navy has inducted two such systems which will provide rescue cover to submarines on the West and East coast of India respectively. Currently, there are about 40 nations that operate submarines in the world. Of which, only a few have any form of submarine rescue capability.
