Based on its early design, ASR-II appears to be quite different (and somewhat smaller) compared to Cheonghaejin. The vessel is currently the only one available in the ROK Navy fleet.

Its missions include rescuing trapped sailors in submarines, naval operation support for submarines, underwater research and mapping support, and recovery of sunk vessels. It is equipped with a Deep Submergence Rescue Vehicle (DSRV) that operates up to 500 meters, and a rescue chamber that can accomodate up to 9 people. The 4,300 tons Cheonghaejin was commissioned in December 1996.
