The unmanned hydrostatic test was performed to 1 14 times the operating depth pressure to verify the integrity of the submersible pressure vessel. The manned test was performed to operating depth pressure to verify the functions of the submersible. The tests proved the integrity and operability of the submersible to operate safely at a depth of 1200 FSW to the certification standards of ABS. Author
