Title: Evaluation of Poseidon Unisuit and O'Neill Supersuit Systems.
Author: Middleton, JR
Abstract: The Navy Experimental Diving Unit evaluated the Poseidon Unisuit and the O'Neill Supersuit systems for use with scuba, the MK 15 Mod O UBA, and the Diver's Mask MK 1 Mod O, all in the variable volume mode. As a result of this manned testing, the O'Neill Supersuit has been recommended for inclusion on the list of equipment Approved for Navy Use (ANU). The Poseidon Unisuit is already included on that list. In addition, both suits are recommended for use as variable volume dry suits via low pressure inflators powered from the diver's first stage regulator or an independent pony bottle air source. It is further recommended that all diving commands implement comprehensive on-the-job-training programs to ensure that divers are thoroughly familiary with suit characteristics and buoyancy control/blowup prevention techniques.
