Title: Saturation Dives, with Excursions, for the Development of a Decompression Schedule for Use during SEALAB III.
Author: Kuling, JW; Summitt, JK
Abstract: Twenty-three saturation dives to depths of 200 to 850 feet were conducted at the US Navy Experimental Diving Unit to verify a decompression schedule for use at SEALAB III. Seventy-one divers completed ninety-seven man-dives and tested decompression schedules based on two different fundamental rates of ascent during the dive series. Seventy-four man-excursion dives were conducted during the series, including a record-breaking excursion to a depth of 1025 feet. A decompression schedule for use from a depth of 600 feet was developed and found to be safe for use during SEALAB III. Eight cases of decompression illness occurred during the dive series. Details of these cases are covered in the report. (Author)
