Recently an assessment of diving equipment under consideration by the. U.S. Navy was conducted. The systematic analysis was based on physiological factors and human-engineering considerations. In particular, comparative analysis of the standard U.S. Navy Mark V and the prototype Mark XII, a surface- supported dive system designed to replace the Mark V, showed that a comparison of the two systems, using biomechanical analysis and physiological assessment, can offer important leads to design and modification.
