Abstract:

The pre-production air lung was evaluated for its ability to sustain easy breathing under simulated 0.88-knot swimming conditions at a depth of 150 feet. It was found suitable for use as a shallow-water swimming and diving unit for surface durations up to two hours and for depths to 150 feet, subject to the following comments 1 The mouthpiece assembly may require modifications for comfort. 2 The air reserve lanyard needs redesigning to prevent accidental release of the valve.
