Ocean Infinity confirms that it has found ARA San Juan, the Argentine Navy submarine which was lost on 15 November 2017.
In the early hours of 17 November, after two months of seabed search, Ocean Infinity located what has now been confirmed as the wreckage of the ARA San Juan. The submarine was found in a ravine in 920m of water, approximately 600 km east of Comodoro Rivadavia in the Atlantic Ocean.
From early September 2018, the search for the submarine was aided by DOS. DOS provided a number of their most experienced personnel to this operation including a senior sonar analyst (Target Master) and 3 surveyors.
ARA San Juan (S-42) was a TR-1700-class diesel-electric submarine which has been in service with the Argentine Navy since 19 November 1985.
In early November 2017, she was part of a navy exercise off Tierra del Fuego which included the sinking of the ex ARA Comodoro Somellera as a target.
On 17 November, it was announced that she had not been heard from since 15 November, and that an operation had been launched 200 nautical miles (370 km; 230 mi) southeast of San Jorge Gulf. There were at least 44 service personnel on board the missing submarine.
