The report covers a secondary investigation into the adequacy of the Italian Scuba known as the Pirelli for use in the Naval service. The evaluation places a limitation in the conditions for which the Pirelli is satisfactory Namely, for shallow diving conditions of rest or very moderate work. The equipment is not adequate for swimming conditions in excess of one hour and thirty minutes, it is hazardous for any swimming or diving conditions involving heavy work, and it is subject to the same maximum 30 foot depth limitation as all other oxygen Scubas.
