LARS Diver Launch and Recovery System with cage

The LARS was designed to have a small footprint for easy transportation (It will fit in a 20 foot container) and so that it takes up minimal deck space when on ship.

IMCA DO18 and DO23 certification is provided with the system.

We can also supply LARS to custom requirements.
