Avon Protection are pleased to announce the launch of the Core Intelligent; a heated undersuit which maintains diver body temperature in all water conditions.
Global Militaries are realising the impact of Non-Freezing Cold Injury (NFCI) and its effect to both training and operations. In the diving sphere the prevalence and diagnosis of this injury is on the rise, particularly with the adoption of diver propulsion systems and underwater vehicles.
The Core Intelligent undersuit is designed specifically to combat Non-Freezing Cold Injuries, and in turn, protect and maintain a diver’s operational effectiveness. This new capability is highly versatile and can be deployed to combat exposure in all environments, both sea and land. Core Intelligent consists of several autonomous heating zones located on the torso, hands and feet. Utilising active sensing, each zone is monitored by a sensor and can be heated individually or all at once to maintain the diver’s body temperature.
Compatible with both wet and drysuit diving systems or for use as a surface under-garment (small boat work etc.) Core Intelligent’s capability is the result of close collaboration with key military users and partnership with market leading industry manufacturer Santi.
Understanding the requirements of users has been the key to the successful development of the Core Intelligent undersuit; creating an intelligent thermal solution where users don’t have to compromise on mission endurance, decompression management or manoeuvrability. At Avon Protection we are continuously working with our customers worldwide to design, develop and deliver world leading capability to guarantee their safety and to equip them with the latest technology.Kevin Gurr, Maritime Technology Officer, at Avon Protection
