Submarine crews by their nature are trained to evade detection, but that very skill may ultimately cost the lives of 44 crew on the Argentinian submarine San Juan which has vanished in the south Atlantic Ocean.Key points:Hopes fade by the hour if communications failLast known location was 430km off Argentinian coastMay have enough oxygen for two weeksThe German-built submarine disappeared off the radar last Wednesday as it returned from a routine voyage to Ushuaia, near the southernmost tip of South America.A few satellite "blips" were intercepted at the weekend, thought to be from the San Juan trying to make contact.But they failed to connect, and unless communications can be restored, hopes of rescuing the crew are slimming by the hour."It's not entirely clear that communications have been lost, but if they have been I don't think the prognosis is particularly good at the moment," said Andrew Davies, director of Defence and Strategy at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute in Canberra.Dr Davies spent more than a decade at Australia's Defence Department, where he worked on intelligence to detect submarines.He said the sub's asset in hiding at the bottom of the sea is a double-edged sword.Navy protocol calls for a submarine to surface immediately if communication is lost. But the San Juan was covering a journey of more than 3,000 kilometres up the Argentinian coast to its base at Mar del Plata.Its last known location was 430km off the Argentinian coast.Search efforts have concentrated around the San Jorge Gulf, but bad weather and stormy seas have complicated the search.'Enough oxygen for two weeks'Dr Davies said submariners are trained to rescue themselves in certain circumstances, but survival depends on the vessel's depth and what else has happened on board."There are escape suits. You can basically pop out of the submarine in an inflatable suit and bob to the surface," he said."That's always a possibility, although you would think that if that was the case, that might have already happened by now."The San Juan is reported to have enough oxygen for two weeks. But survival for that long would depend on what has caused the submarine to lose communications."If there has been a fire, that consumes a lot of the oxygen."In August 2000, the Russian "Kursk" submarine disappeared in the Arctic reaches of the Barents Sea.Only later did authorities learn there had been a series of explosions on board. All 118 crew on board died. A small number of crew survived the initial explosions, but in a part of the submarine where escape was impossible.Dr Davies said unfortunately bad news stories outweigh good news stories when it comes to submarines.In 1968, a US nuclear submarine disappeared after leaving Spain. Like the San Juan, it too dropped off the radar and lost communication.It was later found to have been lost in very deep water with 99 crew on board.
"O navio retornou à superfície e comunicou uma avaria. O comando ordenou então ao submarino que alterasse a rota e se dirigisse para o Mar da Prata", afirmou Gabriel Galeazzi, em conferência de imprensa.No sábado, as estações navais receberam sete sinais, de baixa frequência, através de comunicação por satélite, que se supunham poder ser do submarino, o que não se confirmou.O porta-voz da Armada da Argentina, Enrique Balbi, disse que foi recebido "o relatório da empresa que analisou os sinais e as sete tentativas de contacto não correspondem ao submarino".O submarino San Juan, com uma tripulação de 44 marinheiros, continua a ser procurado sem êxito no mar da Prata, numa área com um diâmetro de 300 quilómetros da linha da costa. Balbio frisou que a Armada argentina "continua sem comunicações" com o vaso de guerra, cuja chegada à base do Mar da Prata estava prevista para domingo ou hoje.Desde quarta-feira que a unidade da Armada argentina, que zarpou do porto de Ushuaia para uma missão de vigilância, se encontra desaparecido.O submarino, de construção alemã, com propulsão diesel e elétrica, foi alvo de uma revisão profunda em 2014.
Argentina's navy says fresh noises are not from missing submarineSounds detected during search for ARA San Juan came from ‘biological source’Search enters critical phase amid concern oxygen running out
(CNN)Efforts to locate an Argentine submarine that has been missing since last week have been ramped up dramatically by a multinational search team of boats and planes, the country's navy says."We have tripled the search effort, both on the surface and underwater, with 10 airplanes," said Gabriel Galeazzi, a spokesman with the Mar Del Plata Argentine naval base.Ships and aircraft from at least seven countries are scouring the southern Atlantic for the submarine ARA San Juan, which was last seen Wednesday."We have 11 ships from the Argentine navy, from municipalities, and from countries that have collaborated with research ships such as Uruguay, Chile, Brazil, Peru, the United States, and (the UK)."These ships are following the submarine's planned route, (and are) sweeping the whole area and we also have navy ships sweeping from north to south and from south to north."
ARA San Juan: balsas podem ter sido trocadas durante modernização de meia-vidaUma fonte ligada à operação de busca e salvamento ao submarino argentino ARA San Juan, disse com exclusividade ao Poder Naval que as balsas avistadas por aeronave P-8A Poseidon e por navios da Armada Argentina podem pertencer ao submarino argentino desaparecido.No momento está ocorrendo uma discussão interna na Armada Argentina para saber se, durante a modernização de meia-vida do submarino ARA San Juan, as balsas reinstaladas foram tiradas de outro tipo de submarino, como o Type 209, por medida de economia.As balsas encontradas são de capacidade menor do que o tipo de balsa que o TR-1700, classe do ARA San Juan, deveria ter. Se o submarino estava com uma tripulação de 44 pessoas, deveria ter duas balsas de 22 pessoas, mas as balsas encontradas são de capacidade menor. Mas o tipo de balsa é o mesmo usado em submarinos, da marca RFD Survitec.O avistamento de pirotécnicos brancos ao invés de vermelhos (encarnados) também poderia ser pelo mesmo motivo, ou seja, os sobreviventes poderiam estar usando o equipamento que foi disponibilizado durante a modernização.É preciso saber agora qual será a resposta da Armada Argentina sobre essa importante questão.
