15-2 APPLICATIONS

APPLICATIONS

The Deep Diving System (DDS) is a versatile tool in diving and its application is extensive. Most of today’s systems employ a multilock deck decompression chamber (DDC) and a personnel transfer capsule (PTC).

  • Non-Saturation Diving. Non-saturation diving can be accomplished with the PTC pressurized to a planned depth. This mode of operation has limited real time application and therefore is seldom used in the U.S. Navy.
  • Saturation Diving. Underwater projects that demand extensive bottom time (i.e., large construction projects, submarine rescue, and salvage) are best conducted with a DDS in the saturation mode.
  • Conventional Diving Support. The DDC portion of a saturation system can be employed as a recompression chamber in support of conventional, surfacesupplied diving operations.
