Crews of Deep-Sea Submersibles Prepare for Participation in Bold Monarch 20012

Crews of deep-sea submersibles operated by Northern Fleet (NF) Search and Rescue Dept are preparing for participation in the Bold Monarch 2012 international submarine rescue exercise.

Practical training takes place in Varlamov Bay Range, Barents Sea. Operators improve control skills of submersibles at deep waters and dock with coaming of a dummy submarine.

The next phase of the training will be practice on real submarine in the Barents Sea. Rescuers will dock with a submarine lying on the seabed at the depth over 60 meters.

International submarine rescue exercise Bold Monarch 2012 will be held in the Norwegian Sea coming summer. Russian rescuers along with foreign colleagues will practice salvage of “damaged” submarine with crew evacuation by escape vehicle.

Earlier in 2008, NF rescuers took part in similar exercise, and observers from 25 countries highly appreciated actions of Russian specialists.

NF search-and-rescue service operates Prize– and Bester-type manned deep-sea submersibles designed for evacuation of submariners. Titanic hull makes possible to operate at depth down to 1,000 meters. Onboard radioelectronics helps to identify the submersible’s position and detect damaged submarine.

The submersibles are delivered to the site by ships. NF rescue ships Mikhail Rudnitsky and Georgy Titov are used as submersible carriers.

Offshore Patrol Vessels Technology 2016

Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPVs) are becoming an increasingly important resource for Navies and Coast Guards around the world. As shipbuilding technologies continue to advance the mission scope for a single OPV platform greatly increases. Policing missions such as Counter-Piracy and Counter-Terrorism operations can be supplemented now by survey and Mine Countermeasure operations simply by swapping equipment on board the ship. This is all done with a greatly reduced cost compared to mission-specific platforms or full scale warships which have greater maintenance and operations costs compared to flexible OPVs.

Therefore SMi is proud to announce that it will be launching its inaugural OPV Technology event which will focus on the new potential for OPVs within this proliferation in combat and combat support technology capabilities. The event will be held in London on the 8th-9th June to discuss how individual nations are working to enhance the capabilities of their coastal fleets as well as the prospect for future cooperation and interoperability.

Expert speaker line up for 2016 includes key decision makers from: US Africa Command, UK Border Force, French Navy, NATO, Italian Navy, Royal Norwegian Navy, Finnish Border Guard, TNO, Damen Shipyards, C-SIGMA, IISS and many more.

 

Benefits of Attending:

  • Extremely focused on new technologies available to OPV using nations across Europe and beyond
  • Expert led panel discussions on international cooperation in operations and the future prospect for modular technologies
  • Briefings from leading Navy and Coast Guard officers from around the world
  • Learn about current and future national OPV platforms and how they enhance maritime security
  • Discover how to optimise business potential by working with these countries
