Low acoustic signature

Figure 17-12. MK 16 UBA General Characteristics.


1. Extended decompression requirement for long bottom times or deep dives.

2. Limited physical and thermal protection

3. No voice communications (unless FFM used)

4. Extensive predive/postdive procedures


Working limit 150 feet, air diluent; 200 fsw, HeO2


Operational Considerations:

2. Safety boat(s) required

3. MK 16 decompression schedule must be used (unless using CSMD procedure 70 fsw and shallower, or air decompression procedures 70 fsw and shallower)

Depth (fsw)
