Abstract : The military specifications for open circuit SCUBA regulators provide a mechanism by which commercial vendors may submit their regulators to the Navy Experimental Diving Unit for testing for possible approval for U.S. Navy use. Accordingly, U.S. Diver's single hose regulators Calypso III, Calypso J, Conshelf XII and Aquarius and double hose regulator Royal Aquamaster were tested in September 1972. Due to the non availability of government test chambers, the regulators were tested at U.S. Divers test facility under the supervision of a government engineer. All five regulators were found to meet the requirements of the appropriate military specifications, and all were approved for U.S. Navy use. (Author)
