"Implementation of the R & D" Development of a modular system for rescue of crews of emergency submarines lying on the ground (cipher "Lucina") "", - says in the column "name of work" on the website of public procurement.

The cost of the work should not exceed 221 million rubles. It is also reported that the bulk of the funds (103 million) of this amount will be allocated in the 2020 year.

The Defense Ministry clarified that the contractor will be selected in September of this year on the basis of a closed tender.

It is indicated that development work should be completed by November 2020.

Earlier, the newspaper reported that Russia was developing an underwater vehicle capable of operating from an external combustion engine for more than 3 months.

According to Igor Denisov, one of the leaders of the Advanced Research Foundation (FPI), the military department is interested in creating unmanned vehicles capable of transmitting information about “potentially dangerous” objects under water, other underwater vehicles, as well as reporting “other useful data”.

      The idea is good, that's just 221 one million rubles - this is only for one set of modules. And we have much more vessels carrying deep-sea rescue vehicles. And the conditions for placement on them are different.

    I translate into Russian: a modular system is nothing more than a complex consisting of several pressure chambers interconnected for the full and gradual withdrawal of divers (divers in equipment) from decompression mode on board a lifeguard vessel.

    And I kind of looked like a “bathyscaphe” at the Nerpa shipyard in the boathouse (15 workshop, I mean). True, it was a long time ago. And he was completely orange. We had an instrumental opposite.
