Sonistics are proud to have participated in a submarine escape exercise in Norway last week. 14 submariners successfully escaped from a submerged submarine – HNLMS Zeeleeuw. The Texcon Escape suit was proven to work to it's full capacity with all escapees reporting no problems whatsoever during the escapex. The HABETaS air system fitted to the Dutch submarine performed well in this real-time trial.
The Royal Netherlands and Royal Norwegian navies co-operated on this exercise which provided valuable data for use in future design projects. LtCdr Jos Bogaert and the team were impressed by the performance of the equipment and the Escapex 12 was a 100% success.
