Apollo launched a new diving rebreather at IMDEX 2013, delivering by far the best work of breathing on the market today. This allows tactical swimmers to go further, faster, and for longer durations than ever before. This incorporates the latest water tolerant scrubber technology from Micropore, allowing speedy turnaround and unprecedented safety.
Apollo currently supplies a range of products for tactical diving to the Australian Defence Force, and look forward to introducing the very advanced Incursion Rebreather to the military diving fraternity.
The new rebreather is offered as part of a system covering all the tactical diver’s requirements, including new combat fins, tactical dry suit, full face mask and SDV (Swimmer Delivery Vehicle). The rebreather covers all depths from pure oxygen use, through to nitrox and heliox. It is the only military rebreather in the world to meet the “Gold Standard” in Functional Safety, IEC 61508.
Dr Mike Kelly, Minister for Defence Materiel for Australia, “Our military equipment has to operate in the heat and humidity of the tropics, in the fluctuating temperature of arid deserts; in cold Antarctic waters, and across the warm waters of a vast littoral sea. To meet these challenges Australia has a world class, innovative and technology sophisticated defence industry. It is the cornerstone of Australia’s National Security capability and plays an essential role in equipping the Australian Defence Force.”
Supporting this, Apollo also unveiled for the first time their dive computer range, which also achieves a first in the world to achieve a Functional Safety certification: IEC 61508 at SIL 2.
