Abstract
The Canadian Forces has a requirement for a Deck Decompression Complex which will be used for both saturation and sub-saturation diving in conjunction with the submersible SDL-1. The report considers the application of Human Engineering to two major areas of the design of the chamber complex, the habitability and convenience of the man-rated chambers, and the efficiency and safety of operation of the DDC support systems. Specific recommendations are made on environmental parameters, nutrition and personal hygiene, crew work activities, recreation, and chamber living space as well as on the area of control console design.
