Title: Manned Evaluation of the MK-15 UBA (Underwater Breathing Apparatus) Canister Duration in 13 C Water Using a Resting Diver Scenario.
Author: Zumrick Jr, JL
Abstract: The CO2 absorbent canister duration of the MK-15 closed-circuit Underwater Breathing Apparatus (UBA) was evaluated using a resting diver scenario in 13 C water at 65 FSW. The Passive Diver Thermal Protection System (PDTPS) was worn during the study. Results demonstrate that the safe operational limit of the MK-15 UBA for a diver mainly at rest in 13 C water is 321 minutes. (Author)
