Sub rescue system returns from Norway via March ARB

Crews unload the U.S. Navy’s next generation Submarine Rescue System, the Submarine Rescue Diving and Recompression System (SRDRS), onto the March Air Reserve Base flight line, June 18, 2008, after it returned home from a NATO submarine search-and-rescue exercise in the North Sea, May 26 to June 6. The operation, Exercise Bold Monarch, took place off the coast of Kristiansand, Norway, and involved over 14 countries, making it the largest-ever exercise of its kind. The aim of the exercise was to train and demonstrate that NATO, in participation with other submarine operating nations, can perform life-saving operations at extreme ocean depth in support of a distressed submarine, including all medical aspects involved in a submarine disaster. SRDRS is stationed at Deep Submergence Unit (DSU), Naval Air Station North Island, San Diego, California. (U.S. Navy photo by Paul Lampley)
