Abstract

This development is to address diver helmet communications that will operate in the high noise of diver helmet breathing noise and underwater tool noise as well as in varying gas density/mixtures (squeaky voice). The developed system (helmet (bottom-side) and diver station (topside)) will demonstrate improved and clear communications in actual dives and/or dive chambers. The components will be rugged and usable in marine environments while utilizing existing umbilical lines. It will also include noise monitoring and consider future fiber optic signal umbilical lines.
