According to this article on the RN website, NSRS has just been trialled succesfully with a Norwegian submarine. The vehicle used was the PSSL Triton SP ROV which replaces the LR5. This is currently known as the SRV1 (Submarine Rescue Vehicle 1) but the team is looking for a more imaginative name. My suggestion is 'Sue' (Sundodger Underwater Evacuator) although 'Thunderbird 4' might be appropriate. Any others?

Seems its to be based in Faslavatory.

and its opperating depth is 1000m compared to 400m for LR5
You don't want to be operating down at that depth Toppers. In fact I don't think 1000 metres exists......it's figure they use to scare the sprogs with in the Submarine School. Anything below 400 metres is bloody silly.

The RN are having another weapon developed to be used at silly scarey depths. It's a follow on from Tigerfish and Spearfish. The new weapon will be called Flatfish. All the lower beams on the sensor head will be deleted 'cos nothing will be daft enough to be beneath it!

How about ARTEMIS? A pertinent reminder to all that things can and do go wrong.
