Abstract : In response to NAVSEA tasking, Navy Experimental Diving Unit (MEDU) evaluated the MAKO 5436 High Pressure Breathing Air Compressor from April 1994 to May 1994. This test was to determine if the compressor, when operating at 5000 PSI, met Navy diving community requirements. Based on the test results MEDU recommends that the compressor be placed on the Approved for Navy Use list published by NAVSEA OOC.
