The rebreather system development is continuing. We have sucessfully tested some more refinements to the design. Jeff Bozanic has been invaluable, contributing expertise and identifying some diving hardware which will be useful to us.
James Murray, Jeff Bozanic and Morgan Sandercock discuss the rebreather components.
The “breadboard” rig has been updated to include an exercise bike. This was used to increase oxygen consmption and CO2 production. The work-rate of the exercise was so much higer than the expected work rate that this option will not appear in the next version.
Morgan Sandercock, James Murray and Einar Enevoldson prepare the exercise test.
The results were very promising, confirming that this is the correct direction to move forwards with more development.
