During his visit to NSA Panama City, RDML Brian Brakke stopped by NEDU to see our saturation diving facilities. NEDU commanding officer CDR Jay Young gave him a tour of the Ocean Simulation Facility and the saturation diving detachment system. Photos by LT Jennifer Jewell, USN.
Last Thursday, NEDU divers provided the dive side for RDML Brian Brakke as he dove the Diver Augmented Vision Display (DAVD) at NDSTC. The DAVD was developed by researchers at NSWC PCD and allows divers to view their location in relation to underwater targets inside their own helmet. Photos by LT Jennifer Jewell, USN.
