Avon Underwater Systems at Canadian Underwater Conference & Exhibition , Victoria, British Columbia March 29-31, 2015

Avon Underwater Systems (AUS), part of Avon Rubber p.l.c, will be demonstrating their range of market leading products, technical services and bespoke project capabilities for the military and commercial diving markets.

Building on their position at the forefront of diving computer designs, advanced data handling and decompression physiology, AUS will be launching their new military-standard Dive Computer.

This next generation dive computer, with real-time data/decompression loggers and a custom interface, is fully reconfigurable allowing remote programming as requirements change, and the multiple algorithm set-up allows for end user decompression system programming.

Available as a low Mag option, the new Dive Computer is STANAG A compliant for EOD/MCM use, and client decompression tables and procedures can be included.

With high resolution graphics providing enhanced resolution and backlighting for ultra-clear messaging and a long battery life, the new Dive Computer from AUS sets the standard for the military.

Also on display will be the proven DID Deepwater Intelligent Data Logger, a diver carried multi sensor data logger for subsea applications to display and record pressure, flow, PH, voltage and current data as well as other sensors.

The AUS Sentinel Rebreather, a mixed gas (Helium/Nitrogen/Oxygen) diving rebreather set, with a maximum operating depth of 100m and a super-efficient CO2 absorbent system is designed for general rebreather operations where a non-magnetic signature requirement is not needed. Software customization to meet end user requirements is possible and field upgrades are available via a remote reprogramming system. The Sentinel is designed, tested and manufactured to EN14143 and ISO 9001 Article 11B.
