Abstract
The Canadian Underwater Mine Apparatus (CUMA: commercial name SIVA+) is a semi-closed circuit constant partial pressure oxygen/helium rebreather diving set and represents a major new capability for manned seabed intervention in the Mine Countermeasures (MCM) role. CUMA was developed by the Experimental Diving Unit at the Defence and Civil Institute of Environmental Medicine in conjunction with Fullerton Sherwood Engineering Limited in response to a Department of National Defence requirement. This report describes the development of the CUMA and the associated development, by DCIEM (EDU), of the CUMA MCM Div System. The report period is from September 1985 to January 1992. Intended as a historical reference document, the report covers, in chronological order, the various experiments and evaluations carried out to develop the breathing apparatus and associated diving system components, the results of these trials and recommendations for the future.
