This innovative Launch and Recovery System has been developed in cooperation between the Dutch company of TBV Marine Systems and German Company of Global Davit GMBH

This innovative Fast Response Craft (FRC) stern Launch and Recovery System (LARS), is capable of launching FRCs (Fast Respond Craft) of more than meters and weighing over eight tons. This procedure can be executed successfully in a sea state up to SS4, a 5 Beaufort wind speed and waves up to 2.25 meters. The patented system makes use of a double frame, placed on the slipway of the vessel. The frames consist of a main frame with a buckling unit and a landing frame. The landing frame lowers into the water and buckles horizontally: now the FRC hooks itself into the landing frame, using the specially designed catch hook. At this point, the landing frame will straighten back into the main frame, while the mainframe simultaneously pulls back into the vessel's slipway. The movement of both frames is powered by one cylinder.

Currently 30 ships of China coast guard and Saudi Arabia coast guard is using our Fast Response Craft (FRC) stern Launch and Recovery System (LARS)
