The Self Propelled Aquanaut’s Suit

This is the self-propelled diving suit that maintains sea level air pressure while enabling descents to 1,000′ below the water’s surface.

The suit provides access to coral reefs, shipwrecks, and the sea floor via 24 sealed and integrated A536 aluminium alloy rotary joints that impart mobility to the wearer’s arms and legs. Four 1.6-horsepower thrusters integrated into the suit provide vertical, horizontal, and rotational movement, two 150-watt LED lights combine to illuminate underwater subjects with 19,200 lumens, and an integrated Imagenex sonar maintains situational awareness.

An intercom system provides surface communication on hard wire with a wireless through-water backup, while its 50-hour life support systems (2x oxygen and 1x carbon dioxide scrubber) ensure safety. A 1,250′ umbilical connects the suit with one’s preferred topside support crew and power source, enabling remote control of thrusters, lights, and real-time monitoring of cabin pressure and oxygen, freeing a diver to observe underwater features and aquatic life using the built-in, shoulder-mounted high-definition video camera.
