In this scenario, trainees will plan and execute the search in a seaside environment. During the exercise, they will be required to interview role-players to obtain the basic info to plan their search, choose the right tooling to perform the search (submarine torpedoes, boat towing, marine sonar, etc.) and once the search is successful, how to collect the pieces of evidence and preserve it to guarantee a proper chain of custody.


In this scenario, trainees will face the search for a stranded element in a seaside environment, they will face the search for a lost element, the planning of how to recover it, the safety of the lifting and the buoyancy considerations while preserving the pieces of evidence.
