Abstract:

In order for Marine Reconnaissance Divers to perform their tasks withsafety and efficiency, a supplemental heat source is required. It must be compact in size, lightweight, capable of providing adequate power for the lowest water temperatures a diver will encounter, and be so designed as not to interfere with the divers mobility. A test and evaluation program was conducted to determine if this battery system was capable of providing a diver with a sufficient amount of heat, while motionless, in 1-3C water for a period of 2 hours at depths less than 100 feet.
