JFD has completed a timed mobilisation of the NATO Submarine Rescue System (NSRS). This was undertaken during the Golden Arrow Submarine Rescue exercise held in March 2022.

From the Port of Glasgow, King George V (KGV) dock and with support from the NSRS authority, the NSRS Rescue System was embarked onto SD Northern River, followed by at-sea exercises in the vicinity of the Isle of Arran in Scotland.

In the event of a Distressed Submarine (DISSUB), it is vital that the NSRS can respond and mobilise to a Vessel of Opportunity (VOO) urgently to allow the rescue system to transit to the datum point as soon as possible. This exercise provided practice and training for the NSRS Authority, JFD and its suppliers, so that should a real-life incident occur, the capability is prepared.

Gary Lindhofer, Head of Defence – Services, JFD, said:
"Ensuring the NSRS system can mobilise from the UK is critical to support the NATO Participant Nations – the UK, Norway and France. Exercise Golden Arrow is the UK exercise which involves mobilisation of the NSRS Rescue System to a designated vessel to provided assurance of this capability.

The continuous timed mobilisation enables the Authority, JFD and its supply chain to realistically conduct the critical installation of the system onto the vessel, providing significant training benefit to the team. From a management perspective, it allowed the team to implement its fatigue management processes to keep people safe."
