Abstract:

The report summarizes the results of a feasibility study and cost effectiveness analysis of an underwater air supply system. The study was limited to a five-man habitat occupied with a 30-day resupply cycle suitable for depths from 500-6000 feet. It was desired to find whether the system could compete on a cost basis with other systems, such as those using high pressure oxygen cylinders and lithium hydroxide cannisters. Author
