EMERGENCY ANCHORING SYSTEM (EASY)
The EASY is housed in a 20 ft ISO container and is secured on the deck of the RRDF. The EASY provides a means
of anchoring the RRDF platform in the event the sealift vessel has to depart the operating area due to weather
conditions or some other contingency. The components of the EASY are the mooring bridle, 2400 lb NAVMOOR
anchor, the stowage and deployment frame, two manual hydraulic pumps and flexor receiver adaptors. When
required, the mooring is deployed by extending the drawer slide to its extended position and elevating the slide with
the hand pump until the anchor slides into the water.
