Navy-based submarine rescue system goes airborne

Ministry of Defence said:
The NATO Submarine Rescue System (NSRS), which is based at HM Naval Base Clyde in Scotland, was deployed by air for the first time last week to be a part of a major exercise in Norway.

£47m to look for subs in distress?

Wouldnt it be easier to just look for the big metal tube sticking out of the nearest sandbank? Just a thought.
Couldn't we employ a distressed submarine outreach officer at vastly reduced cost?
The £47m system was loaded onto two giant Boeing C-17 Globemasters and three Antonov 124 aircraft before taking off for Bergen to participate in Exercise Golden Arrow.

The system can be deployed at a moment's notice anywhere in the world to the scene of a submarine in distress.

Sounds just like Thunderbirds doesn't it?
