Training at the ventilation was done for the first time on the reconstruction of a future nuclear attack submarine (SNA) Suffren kind. Ventilate to a distressed submarine is a complex operation requiring unparalleled expertise of highly qualified specialists of the CEPHISMER. During the year, the NEWTSUIT was monitored by the intervention robot ULISSE (heavy Response Unit underwater surveillance and expertise).
