View Full Version : Calling all rebreather mfrs...
April 23rd, 2009, 08:40 PM
I heard the Navy is accepting rebreather submissions until mid-June 2009 for testing. It would be a great service to rebreather owners and prospective buyers to have your units tested by the Navy so we could have some scientific 3rd party data. I believe the last time they tested rebreathers was quite a few years ago and many more models have hit the market since then.
Who amongst you manufacturers is planning to or already has submitted a rebreather for evaluation?
I will cross post this to other threads.

Ari - do you have a link or other info we can forward to our favorite manufacturers so that they are aware of what is required?

I don't know yet but I'm trying to get that info for you. Thx...

Hey Tim and anyone else:
Here is the NEDU NAVSEA website for ANU's (Authorization for Navy Use) info. This is where the rebreathers will start the testing. I couldn't find the NAVSEA info for where & when they want the rebreathers (I think deadline is June 15). If the Mfg's dont know, they can call NAVSEA & find out the details.
SEA 00C3 ANU List (http://www.supsalv.org/00c3_anuList.asp?destPage=00c3&pageId=3.2)
Thx for passing it on Tim, are you willing to post here which manufacturers you passed this on to?

Thanks for the info and link.
I passed it along to the guys who are currently building my unit Open Safety Equipment (http://www.opensafety.eu) not sure if fits with their objectives or not, but figured it wouldn't hurt to pass the info along. (though they were probably already aware of it I'd guess)
