International Submarine Escape and Rescue Liaison Office


DYNAMIC MONARCH 2017 (DYMH17) is the tenth in a series of NATO sponsored live Submarine Search, Escape and Rescue exercises.

The exercise is designed to demonstrate multi-national submarine rescue co-operation and to share SMER related knowledge amongst worldwide partners.

DYMH17 is open to PfP/ICI/MD and PaTG Nations on a case-by-case basis, thus a significant number of the observers will be from non-NATO countries

The Primary Training Audience (PTA) is 'Worldwide Submarine Operating Nations and Rescue Elements".

Many assets participating in DYMH17 are of civilian status.
