Underwater Search and Recovery: A reference to develop a regulatory framework for the Indian Ocean Region

The Indian Ocean Region (IOR) is strategically gaining substantial relevance, resulting in massive maritime build-up both militarily and otherwise. The economic aspect of it’s importance is highlighted by the fact that the IOR is the most critical area globally, in terms of international energy and commerce that crosses these waters [1]. Container traffic through the region’s ports has increased fourfold from 46 million TEUs in 2000 to 166 million TEUs in 2017 [2]. Over 95% of our trade happens through the maritime router. The increasing maritime build-up, exposes us to vulnerabilities related to accidents and losses at sea of both human and high value assets. Underwater Search & Recovery (UWSAR), is becoming critical, thus effective & efficient capability and capacity building is inescapable.
