Abstract:

This paper reports the findings of a market investigation for air compressors that might be suitable for U.S. Army surface supplied diving operations. The goals of the survey and report were to determine whether it was necessary to develop a prototype compressor or whether there were commercial compressors suitable to Army needs. The report documents the effort and the results. Several commercial compressors were found that would fulfill Army needs and recommendations were made regarding those compressors and an appropriate surface supplied diving air system based on those compressors as the primary air supply.
