Abstract:

On 5, 9 and 13 June, a series of saturation dives was made to depths of 100 feet. Their purpose was for the training of personnel and equipment checkout prior to commencing a deep dive program reaching depths of up to 1000 feet. With the exception of the equipment not installed, and the refrigerator system, the complex and its associated equipment performed satisfactorily meeting design specifications. The experience gained through the training of the personnel involved was such that the deep dive program can commence according to schedule. Author
