The Submarine Rescue Diving Recompression System (SRDRS) will replace the Deep Submergence Rescue System which includes the Deep Submergence Rescue Vehicle (DSRV). The new system will operate from vessels of opportunity (VOO). It will be a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) based system. Video from recent contractor trials.

 The rescue vehicle for the SRDRS is called the Pressurized rescue module and is shown below mated to a simulated submarine.




The SRDRS when installed on a vessel of opportunity brings with it own power and auxiliary systems making it virtually independent of the vessel except that it is mounted.
