With this ad­di­tional con­tract, JFD will be de­liv­er­ing sub­ma­rine res­cue ser­vices to six of the most ad­vanced navies in the world con­firm­ing the com­pany’s lead­er­ship in this elite niche.

JFD will pro­vide two com­plete fly-away sub­ma­rine res­cue sys­tems, in­clud­ing deep search and res­cue ve­hi­cles (DSRV), launch and re­cov­ery sys­tems (LARS) equip­ment, trans­fer un­der pres­sure (TUP) sys­tems, and all lo­gis­tics and sup­port equip­ment re­quired to op­er­ate the ser­vice. The equip­ment will be de­signed, man­u­fac­tured, in­te­grated and tested by JFD prior to ship­ping to In­dia for fi­nal com­mis­sion­ing and tri­als.
