Abstract (en)

[origin: CA2838900A1] The invention relates to a system (1) and a method (76) for recovering a submarine vehicle (2). The submarine vehicle (2) is pulled by a rope (50) and hauled by means of said rope (50) and a recovery ramp (12) from the body of water (6) on board a ship (8) or onto land. The system (1) comprises the recovery ramp (12) and a wave equalization ramp (24). The wave compensation ramp (24) can be rotated relative to the recovery ramp (12) about a swivel axis S and is supported by a floating body (36, 38). The watercraft (2) is picked up by means of the recovery ramp (12). The wave compensation ramp (24) is hauled together with the picked-up submarine vehicle (2) by means of the recovery ramp (12). The invention permits the recovery of a submarine vehicle (2), even in moderate or heavy seas, with less risk of damage to the submarine vehicle (2).
