"The program of repairing and upgrading four Priz self-contained SAR submersibles has been completed. The upgrade has afforded the titanium-hulled underwater vehicles sophisticated positioning gear, sonars, television cameras and up-to-date life support systems, which has ramped up the effectiveness of SAR operations," he said.

The Krasnoye Sormovo and Kanonersky Zavod shipyards handled the mid-life repair and modernization.

"In the near future, the Northern Fleet is going to conduct a test dive of the AS-34 SAR submersible down to 1,000 m. The AS-34 is the last of the four vehicles upgraded,"
Shaikhutdinov added.

The Project 1855 Priz submersibles were designed by the Lazurit Design Bureau and built by the Krasnoye Sormovo Shipyard. They measure 13.5 m long, 3.8 m abeam and 5.7 m high and are crewed by four. Each of the submersibles can take aboard 20 rescued seamen. Their endurance is 120 hours (10 hours with rescuees aboard).
