dc.description.abstract An unmanned dive was made in number 6 chamber complex at the Navy Experimental Diving Unit on 7 August 1972. The dive's purpose was to demonstrate the operation for the purpose of certification before commencing a manned deep dive program reaching depths of up to 1000 feet sea water. With the exception of the problem of foulage in the drain valves, and the two false alarms in the fire suppression system, the complex met all performance requirements satisfactorily. Based on the test, the complex demonstrated that it is capable of supporting life at 1000 feet sea water, after removal of foulage in the drain valves. (Author) en
