IET Lecture: NATO’s Submarine Emergency Response Team & Russia’s Kursk Disaster

The Royal Navy has been at the forefront of the development of distressed submarine rescue equipment for many years.  In 1990 there was a renewed need for advancements in the development of submersible rescue craft.  Systems needed to be updated to ensure that our submariners in the NATO Fleet, and their guests, were assured that we were there, and ready, to save their lives.

Eddie Neylon will explain how submariners are rescued from the bottom of an ocean and his involvement in the attempt to rescue the crew of the Russia’s Nuclear Submarine Kursk.  He will explain how this specialist equipment was taken to Murmansk and used to try to save the Russian submariners. Unfortunately the team was too late.

The lecture is free to attend for members and non-members of IET.
