Navy diver reaches 2000 feet

Thumb 060801-N-4995K-002

Developed by OceanWorks International from Vancouver, British Columbia, the Hardsuit 2000 was designed to withstand underwater pressure at 2,000 feet. Current models have only been able to go down as far as 1,200 feet. “The suit worked incredibly,” said Jackson. “It did everything it was intended to do. I always heard that around 1,300 feet, the joints of the Hardsuit 2000 would work even better, and it worked exactly the way they said it would.” Meeting the Navy’s high safety requirements, the ADS suit was designed and acquired by the Navy to support submarine rescue.
