        If the sub is on the bottom, the area is well past crush depth at 700 meters or 2200 plus feet. No chance of rescue by any means.

                If the sub imploded, wouldn’t the undersea mics and seismic monitors have picked it up? It seems that material from inside the boat have been found.

                  A dedicated SOSUS-type system has the capability to detect LOS signals, but are primarily aligned for contacts in more adversarial detection zones and are better suited for narrowband (discrete tonals) frequencies.. That being said, there are seismic sensors capable of detecting broadband events within that area of the world.

                  The US isn't about to geo-locate and risk compromising a valuable capability when the general area is well known and it's only a matter of time before the wreckage is found.

                      An underwater robot equipped with cameras reportedly found the submarine at a depth of 2,750 feet, far deeper than the German-built KRI Nanggala 402's collapse depth — the point at which the hull could no longer withstand the water pressure — of 655 feet. It's still unclear what caused the submarine, which had been in service in Indonesia since 1981, to sink.

                        Rest in Peace.

                        I'm surprised how quickly the local authorities ruled out human error as the cause of the sinking.
