From the Rock,

The first new chamber was delivered to Fort Eustis. The recompression chamber has not officially been turned over to the unit for use yet, there are still additional items that are required to interface with our existing support equipment before its fielded. All of the additional required equipment, TM, and operational procedures are in their final stages and should be validated by the next delivery scheduled during the month of June. The new equipment training for the recompression chamber is being worked out to facilitate the unit’s requirements since the units are so busy this year conducting missions throughout CONUS.

The Capabilities Production Document (CPD) for the procurement of the new DES Underwater Photo Support Set and the combined Individual/Open Circuit SCUBA set is in the final phase of approval, KUDOS to SFC Burress. PM-SKOT is moving forward with procurement actions to support this effort which will provide the field with new updated underwater photo, video, and robotic capabilities. We will have several complete sets to evaluate in the near future. Initial fielding will take place in the near future.

I have been contacted several times reference the implementation of REV 6. The material developer/equipment side of the issue is simple. There is a requirements document in staffing designed to replace the SDASS and provide the equipment required to support O2 decompression IAW REV 6 O2 decompression tables. This system is scheduled to receive funding in FY 09. Current funding is not available to procure an interim O2 System unless units submit a validated requirement such as an

operational needs statement.

We are currently researching a

development and should be more in depth questions via

ready for testing and evaluation early e-mail brian.d.adams@us.army.mil or

light weight O2 manifold that is in this summer. I would be happy to field phone 309-782-1913.

I was able to make a trip to visit the 74th in theater. They provided excellent feed back on a wide range of equipment issues. Since my return I have been receiving a steady supply of AAR’s, equipment issues and

updates.
