Navy SEALS to use modified FRV

All,
The Department of Defense has awarded Oceanic Safety Systems a contract to design and manufacture submersible life vest prototypes for the Navy SEALS. Our new design will be very light weight and use CO2 cylinders for floatation gas. The new design has wide variety of applications, including a FRV-Mark II for freedivers. Take a look at this page: http://oceanicss.com/psa/index.htm
Terry

Thumbs up Re: Navy SEALS to use modified FRV

Hey Terry, when you mentioned that military contract on the phone last Sunday, I thought to myself "wow! - you are certainly a man who deserves it with all the time, money and effort you have put into the development of the FRV." Now I get to say so publically and wish you the very best of success! Tony

Re: Navy SEALS to use modified FRV

Congratulations Terry!

The FDV is a great innovation and advancement in safety for freedivers.
Thanks for all your hard work.

I'm hoping these contracts will inable Oceanicss to subsidize the cost of the FDV to the the average diver.

Any chance of that?

Sincerely

Les
