Abstract : In 1952 it was found that standard naval aviation oxygen equipment operated satisfactorily under water. The Chief of Naval Air Training desired that this equipment be installed and evaluated for a possible training program in aviation underwater survival. Standard naval aviation oxygen equipment was installed in a Dilbert Dunker and as a portable installation for training purposes. In addition, diving equipment was made for a 'Safety Diver.' All apparatus operated successfully. Installation and evaluation is detailed in the report. Equipment and personnel required for operation of the apparatus, as well as a sample lecture are included in the report. (Author)
