A new submarine escape suit, developed by the Naval Medical University of China’s People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN), has been successfully trialled, with six submariners conducting an ascent from a submerged submarine, according to a news report aired by state broadcaster China Central television (CCTV) on 2 January.
据中国中央电视台1月2日播出的新闻报道,中国人民解放军海军的海军医科大学研制的一种新型潜艇逃生服已成功测试,6名潜艇艇员从下潜潜艇上进行上浮。

Although described as a “new system developed in China that is world-class”, footage from the CCTV report shows that the suit has a striking resemblance to the Submarine Escape Immersion Equipment (SEIE) that is in service in the United Kingdom with the Royal Navy (RN).
尽管被称为“中国开发的世界级新系统”,但央视报道的录像显示,这套西装与英国皇家海军(RN)服役的潜艇逃生浸泡设备(SEIE)有着惊人的相似之处。
 
The bright orange immersion suit is fitted with same design of hood – with transparent visor – as the SEIE, which enables the escaping submariner to breathe normally during the ascent from depth. This avoids the potentially lethal problem of air inhaled when under pressure expanding and bursting the lungs if not exhaled as the pressure reduces during the ascent.
这套亮橙色的浸泡服配备了与SEIE相同设计的头罩--透明的遮面板,使从深处潜艇逃生上浮时可以正常呼吸。这避免了在压力下吸入空气可能造成的致命问题,如果在上浮过程中由于压力降低而未呼出,则可能会使肺膨胀并爆裂肺部。
 
The SEIE is designed to be used in conjunction with an escape chamber integral to the submarine’s design, which allows submariners to escape one at a time. This chamber is flooded with water until the internal and external pressures are equal, during which time the escapee has to be supplied with air for breathing. This is provided through a push-in connector through which air flows into the hood. The new Chinese suit has the same bright yellow connector fitted to the left-hand sleeve as the SEIE.
SEIE设计为与潜艇设计中不可或缺的逃生舱结合使用,从而使潜艇一次可以逃生。该舱室被水淹没,直到内部和外部压力相等为止,在此期间,必须向逃生者提供空气以供呼吸。 这是通过一个插入式连接器提供的,空气通过该插入式连接器流入面罩。 新的中国逃生服在左侧袖子上安装了与SEIE相同的亮黄色连接器。
