- Indian Navy also involved in finding Indonesia’s missing submarine
- Indian Navy sent its deep bombardment rescue vehicle, will search in the depths of the sea
- This machine is available to select countries of the world, including DSRV of Australia and Singapore.
The Indian Navy has now joined the search for Indonesia’s missing submarine. The Navy has dispatched its Deep Submarines Rescue Vehicle (DSRV) to Indonesia for relief and rescue operations. In fact, Indonesia has no machinery to protect its naval ships safely by finding their submarine which disappeared into the sea.
Only select countries have DSRV
India included two such DSRVs in the Navy in the year 2018. This vessel is capable of rescuing the marines trapped in the ocean when the submarines in trouble crashed to the depths. Such machinery is still with the US, Russia, India, China, Japan, UK, France, Norway, Italy, Australia, South Korea and Singapore.
This machine can save 14 people at a time
People engaged in relief and rescue operations through DSRV can watch live videos of the submarine in trouble. This helps them to review the actual situation and plan a rescue. This vessel is capable of rescuing 14 people trapped in submarine hundreds of meters at a time. DSRVs can operate up to a maximum depth of 800 meters at sea.
DSRV can be transported by aircraft
The biggest feature is that these deep submersion rescue vehicles can be deployed from one place to another via transport aircraft in a very short period of time. The technologies of DSRVs are also different in different countries. The technology of DSRV is considered to be the most advanced with Russia and the United States. It consists of side scan sonar which can also scan the area on both sides of the submarine.
Live missile fire disappeared a day before practice
Indonesian Army Chief Hadi Jahjanto said that KRI Nanggala 402 was taking part in a training operation on Wednesday when she went missing. He said the submarine is believed to have disappeared into the water about 96 km north of Bali. Jahjanto said that the Navy has deployed several ships in the area, including survey ships, in search of submarines.
There is a possibility of accident due to electric failure
The Indonesian Navy reported that the submarine’s electric system may have stopped while diving. This leaves the crew in control of the submarine. In such a situation, people on board the submarine cannot bring it to the surface even if they want to. The Navy said that they feared that the submarine had sunk into the sea at a depth of 600 to 700 meters. Due to this, its crew is also unable to contact the command center.
