ELSS Pods & Bags

ELSS Pods & Bags

INTRODUCTION

JFD’s Emergency Life Support Stores (ELSS) Pods are used to transfer supplies to a DISSUB, where they augment the life support system until a rescue can be effected. The Pod’s marginal negative buoyancy allows for easy subsea manoeuvring by diver or ROV.

ELSS Pod Posting Bags

JFD’s Emergency Life Support Store Pod Bags are utilised in the escape hatch of a DISSUB to receive ELSS Pods posted by an ROV or diver in an Intervention Scenario.

JFD’s Pod Bags are in operation world-wide on an array of different class submarines. While the principal design remains consistent, the fitment of each is tailored for each specific hatch type.
