dc.description.abstract (U) The carbon dioxide absorbent cannister duration of the MK-15 closed circuit Underwater Breathing Apparatus (UBA) was evaluated during moderate exercise in cold water of 13.4 C and 2 C at 65 FSW. The Passive Diver Thermal Protection System (PDTPS) was worn during the study to evaluate the thermal protection it provides at 65 FSW. Results demonstrate that the safe operational limit of the MK-15 UBA is 117.5 minutes at either 13.4 C or 2 C and the PDTPS provides adequate thermal protection to the diver operating in these temperatures at 65 FSW. en_US
