Post NEDU SAT Dive

NEDU completed its annual Saturation Dive this past Saturday, August 15th, 2009.
Six divers entered the Ocean Simulation Facility (OSF) on August 12th and were pressed to 165 feet of seawater where they conducted 12 hours of in-water diving.

Upon completion of required work the divers started their three days of decompression.

Saturation diving is a complex method of mixed gas (helium) diving that, in the US Navy, is currently only conducted at NEDU. Divers at NEDU are "locked in" to the OSF for a period of up to 30 days to conduct dives as deep as 1000 feet of seawater.
