Abstract:

The Scott Model 8300 air-demand self-contained underwater breathing apparatus has been tested by a series of swimming, diving, and depth breathing resistance runs. It does not meet all of the specifications outlined by the Chief of Naval Operations for an apparatus of its type, mainly because it lacks an interchangeable mouthpiece and facemask arrangement. However, it is sound in principle, excellent in construction, and satisfactory for many shallow water diving operations.
