"At the request of the Russian Navy, we are preparing to deploy a team from the Navy's Deep Submergence Unit to assist with the situation," the statement read. The submersible, called a "Super Scorpio," is capable of cutting one-inch-thick steel cable.

The U.S. team and the submersible will be flown from San Diego on a U.S. Air Force C-5 aircraft later today to Petropavlovsk, Russia, the statement continued.

The United States and Russia are participants in the International Submarine Escape and Rescue Liaison Office (ISMERLO), the statement said, noting that both countries participated in submarine rescue exercise Sorbet Royal off the coast of Italy in June 2005.

"We have been in touch with Russian Navy officials, both directly and through ISMERLO, to offer any assistance available," the U.S. Pacific Fleet statement concluded.
