Avon Protection’s MCM100 is a fully closed circuit, electronically controlled, mixed gas rebreather CE tested to 100m and suitable for a large range of tactical diving disciplines including shallow or deep Mine Counter Measure (MCM), Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD), Mine Investigation and Exploitation (MIE) and Special Operations Forces (SOF) underwater vehicle use, the company writes in a press release.
According to Avon, the system’s critical advantage lies in its advanced electronics architecture. With multiple redundancy electronics, it features digital oxygen sensors and has a moisture tolerant digital carbon dioxide sensor. This combined with data acquisition facility with Bluetooth capability, and a backlit colour handset with automated pre-dive and command-based alarms enables missions of greater duration than traditional systems at extreme work rates and depths, tghe company emphasises. The MCM100 will be on display at the Avon Protection stand A11 at UDT 2022.
