Abstract
Dive computer research and development in Canada first started in 1962 at the Canadian Forces Medical Services Institute of Aviation Medicine. The Kidd-Stubbs pneumatic analogue dive computer was extensively tested with approximately 5000 man-dives involving single dives, repetitive dives and random depth dives. When microprocessors became available, a series of digital, microprocessor-controlled dive computers was developed for the Defence and Civil Institute of Environmental Medicine, including a dive calculator, surface/hyperbaric chamber monitor and a diver-carried computer. This research and development resulted in the commercially available Cyberdiver diver-carried dive computer. In addition to the extensive monitoring of experimental, training and operational dives at DCIEM, dive computers have been used for developing dive tables and dive procedures.
