Diver6 and Shearwater Systems Integrate

Shearwater Research Inc, the leading manufacturer of dive computers and electronic control systems for rebreathers has expanded their support for DiveCAN applications. They are pleased to announce the integration of the Diver6 diver monitoring and communication system with the Petrel and NERD display systems.

The integration between Shearwater and Diver6 provides greatly enhanced communication between diver and dive master. Recall alerts can now be sent to the diver and displayed on the Shearwater devices providing directional information to return to the surface vessel. The dive master can also issue an assist message which will send a diver directional information to another diver in need. Divers can issue a Diver Distress / 911 alert to notify the dive master that they are in trouble. With this integration, dive masters can now effectively react to multiple situations happening underwater.

The integration debuted at the 2014 DEMA show. Many of the attendees were very interested in the integration and were excited to see how the dive master could now direct his divers to locations and assist divers by providing them with valuable directional data.

Its another feature that gives the dive another layer of safety and security.
