Abstract : The report provides a comparative analysis of four open-circuit demand scuba and derives performance standards against which other open-circuit scuba may be compared. The comparative analysis covers the U.S. Divers Aqua-Lung, and three commercial units (the Air Lung, the Hydro-Pak, and the Div-Air). The analysis is based on performance records made during evaluation of the four scuba for Naval service, and includes both objective and subjective performance records. (Modified author abstract)
