Recently I spoke with John Clarke, on our conversation he mentioned that the NAVY is working on a CCR that could be used with umbilical as a backup; so if you still pondering about it, below are public-videos explaining the concept

NAVY and Mike:
One of the leader in dive industry has closed the door. It is sad moment, because much of the investigations, conversations and technologies that was furge during decades aren’t available anymore. As tribute I’m going to publish a series of articles that reflects decades of investigations and advancement and development.
There is no excerpt because this is a protected post.
We’re going to review only some aspects of this system, because this is a merely introduction. So, knowing this, lets get into it. This system is based on a statistical approach to decompression schedule (observation), this mean that you must used a set of standardized gases for a particular range of depth that were chosen […]
Grupos de buceo de seguridad publica Necesitamos estándares nacionales? Formar un grupo de Seguridad Pública requiere un esfuerzo monetario y educativo. Ambos factores son claves para el éxito; más aún, mantener un grupo ya formado requiere al menos un flujo constante de recursos. En este ensayo, quiero discutir las adversidades que representa la formación de […]
Wetnotes desktop is a program based on Windows PC made for the range of DiveSoft dive computers. It is very simple, its purpose is to substitute for the Online based program, which is a completed tool for analyzes your dives. Nonetheless when you don’t have an access to Internet, you may use this program to display your dives.

Pelagian approach to Instant Cell Validation- A pro active way to really find out if the sensors make sense is to have the diluent FgO2 x ambient pressure pre calculated in 5 m increments on your wrist slate or wet notes. Then go to the nearest depth and exhale half a breath from your nose and inhale slowly. If you inhale very slow for 10 seconds you will get a very accurate reading.
Active Sensor Validation-allow the manual injection of diluent gas directly on the oxygen sensors at any point during a dive. This feature served two functions: it purged any condensation that might have accumulated on the sensors (thereby restoring function to sensors blocked by a film of water on the sensing membrane) and, more importantly, it exposed the oxygen sensors to a known fraction of oxygen.
