Title: Development and Validation of 1.3 ATA PO2-in-He Decompression Tables for the MK 16 MOD 1 UBA
Author: Gerth, WA; Johnson, TM
Abstract: The Navy Experimental Diving Unit (NEDU) was tasked by PMS-EOD to develop and validate repetitive helium-oxygen (He-O2) decompression tables for use with the MK 16 MOD 1 Underwater Breathing Apparatus (UBA). The present report provides details of the work that was completed to meet this tasking and produce the tables published in NEDU Technical Report 14-01. The report includes a description of the probabilistic model used as the basis for the tables, and presents a novel method to map this model to an easily-used deterministic model. The latter produces a repetitive decompression table set of format similar to that for standard air diving in the current U.S. Navy Diving Manual, but with schedules that incur explicitly controlled estimated DCS risks.
