To maintain a Surface Supplied Diving (SSD) capability to 100 meters depth in coastal waters in the normal prevailing conditions in the Canadian oceanic littorals.


This project will satisfy four main capabilities: SSD, Mine Countermeasures diving support, Search and Rescue and light salvage support. This capability must include the ability to deploy divers, as well as account for all of the essential logistical support elements of the diving systems, such as a recompression chamber, to effectively and safely execute the diving tasks.
