Magpie Submarine Rescue

Submarine Rescue

The urgency of a Disabled Submarine (DISSUB) requires precise execution of asset mobilization, perfect personnel collaboration and absolute safety with efficiency – all at a global level. Magpie Enterprises Inc. offers the technical expertise to operate, maintain, and train personnel on the various systems critical to submarine rescue. In synchronicity with other entities (as in the Submarine Rescue Alliance or SRA), Magpie’s extraordinary versatility was exhibited in exercises such as Exercise Bold Monarch 2011 and INDIAEX 2012.

Magpie’s senior leadership work in direct unison with the US Navy and NATO Leadership as well as NAVSEA to provide management, programmatic support and rescue training and services world-wide to all NATO forces. We share responsibility as a voting member in all critical working groups which affect the safety and rescue procedures for submariners across the globe.
Submarine Rescue Diving Recompression System SRDRS


The Submarine Rescue Diving Recompression System (SRDRS) is a remotely operated rescue asset for the United States Navy. The system is capable of rapidly deploying to a designated location, embarking on a vessel of opportunity, conducting surveys of the DISSUB, conducting intervention and crew rescue down to 2000 feet at 6 atmospheres pressure.

The system includes: an Atmospheric Dive System (ADS2000), the tethered and remotely-operated Pressurized Rescue Module (PRM), its launch and recovery system, Submarine Decompression System (SDS) and various support equipment.
