Indian Navy develops ‘Rakshak’ for training submarines in damage control 

Indian Navy has developed ‘Rakshak’ – an indigenous designed and developed facility that will enable the training of submarine crews for damage control under the harsh, realistic conditions that the force can face on board.

This main damage control and firefighting training facility is a unique facility established for training submarines in damage control.

The damage control facility is provided with two simulators and a firefighting simulator; the damage control simulator is designed primarily to simulate various flooding emergencies in a constrained environment.

The firefighting simulator is designed to train personnel in fighting fire on submarines in a realistic environment, especially in difficult confined places.” This facility is created to simulate fire responding to the likely fires on board the submarine, like an electrical fire, oil fire, and general fire.
