Continuing efforts are being made to keep the international [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] community one step ahead of the curve in deep-sea rescue efforts. One key element to this was the opening of the International Submarine Escape and Rescue Liaison Office (ISMERLO) in June 2005. The ISMERLO team, whose office is located in Norfolk, Va., is made up of deep-sea escape and rescue experts from around the world. The goal of ISMERLO is basically to be a [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] station for all submarine rescue attempts, acting as a go-between for the different submarine communities around the globe. It also endorses procedures and helps to establish international standards for response and rescue. ISMERLO was first used in the training exercises at the 2005 Sorbet Royal, and this experience was crucial to their success of the Priz rescue effort.
In addition to sponsoring the Sorbet Royal, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] has also begun work on a project called the NATO Submarine Rescue System (NSRS), a European rescue system involving the help of [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. The goal of the NSRS is to develop faster response times and the ability to extract and treat more crew members at once.
The actual rescue system is made up of the following elements:

  • Rescue vehicles, both manned and remote-operated
  • Portable launch and recovery system
  • Decompression units
  • Emergency life-support capabilities
  • Communications equipment

To maximize each rescue effort, the NSRS rescue unit is capable of holding up to 72 crew members at one time, more than double the amount of the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]' DSRV. The equipment is strong enough to withstand the pressures of the deep but light enough to be transported by [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] to anywhere in the world within a 72-hour time frame. The three-man crew can take the unit as deep as 2,000 feet with full operational capabilities. It's currently housed at a naval base in [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], near several military and civilian airports.
