Abstract : Thermal protection of divers is essential for long-duration missions under deep sea diving conditions. One way to achieve diver heating is by providing the diver with a continuous supply of hot water flowing through his protective clothing. To achieve this objective, surveys were carried out to determine the best available deck-mounted heating system, hot water heated suits, and hot water hoses suitable for deep ocean service. A complete prototype diver heating system was purchased and subjected to laboratory and field testing and evaluation. (Author)
