Abstract:

Dry diving suits currently available for use in category 1 contaminated water are not elastomeric. They are bulky, heavy, require assistance with both donning and removing and are therefore incompatible with the precepts of speed, agility, maneuverability and stealth, which form the foundation of modern combat diving. An entirely new design of dry suit is proposed, utilizing a highly chemically and biologically resistant coating on a dry diving suit. The innovative lightweight material will facilitate a new form-fitting, less restrictive suit that will allow combat divers to undertake missions with a greater degree of safety, while being protected from toxic chemicals and harmful pathogens that may be present in the water as well as maintain a high level of durability to abrasion. This will constitute a paradigm shift in dry suit technology.
