1. Combat divers bring a unique capability to the battlefield that must be employed efficiently, effectively, and safely to promote survivability and mission success. B-GG-380-000/FP-002 Canadian Forces Diving Manual, Volume 2, Compressed Air Breathing Apparatus details the operating procedures, rules, regulations, and safety restrictions governing compressed air diving operations in the CF. This chapter provides a general guide for the planning of combat diving operations.
2. The physiological effects resulting from the physics of diving must be considered when planning combat diving operations. These are unalterable parameters of a dive task, unless the commander assumes high risk to the divers' health. Diving officers brief these limitations to the engineer commanders.
