NATO Submarine Escape and Rescue Working Group

The NATO Submarine Escape and Rescue Working Group (SMERWG) encourages the development and implementation of military standardisation within the global Submarine Escape, Rescue and Abandonment (SMERAS) community. This includes, but is not limited to, techniques and training methods, presenting and recommending new equipment and communications related to submarine emergency situations.

NATO SMERWG is held over 4 or 5 days and is open to pfp and other non-NATO submarine operating nations wishing to develop or upgrade a SMERAS capability. Around 34 nations participate, sending 120 delegates who share information and discuss their SMERAS activities. Sub-committees, the TECH Panel, OPS Panel and Medical Panel, meet at least once throughout the year and report back to SMERWG.

The SMERWG brings together submarine operating nations who are looking to develop their SMERAS capability and Industry can assist with this development.

In 2005 Sonistics identified that there was a need for industry to be available at SMERWG to assist with technical issues which were being raised in conference.  As a policy meeting it was inappropriate for industry to attend and access was therefore achieved by an industry-hosted reception. This event is now an established part of SMERWG and benefits industry and delegates in equal measure.
