Abstract:

The helmet was tested for sound levels and ventilation efficiency using specially built test manikins. It was tested for diver comfort in a series of 36 manned dives. Since many of the testing methods used were new, a discussion of the procedures used as well as the results obtained is presented. The sound levels existing in the helmet were found to be into the damage risk levels under all of the conditions tested, but not so far as to preclude its use provided appropriate precautions are taken.
