With the rapid development of submersible technology, exploring the deep sea is no longer a distant dream. In this paper, a set of safety procedures for manned submersibles is designed to ensure that the main ship can respond in time and launch search and rescue in case of loss of connection. The digital elevation model and Kalman filter algorithm are used to process the deep-sea data, combined with the Monte Carlo method to estimate the position of the submersible, and the water depth of 2000m is taken as the working depth. The genetic algorithm is used to optimize the SAR strategy, and environmental factors are considered to affect the sailing speed. For the case of multi-diver lost connection, CNN and LSTM models are combined to predict the 3D path to avoid the risk of collision. These methods will significantly improve the safety of the submersible and the efficiency of search and rescue and promote the sustainable development of deep-sea exploration.
