Seeing things clearly

Coda Octopus has launched its new DAVD (Diver Augmented Vision Display) - a complete end-to-end diver management solution for defence and commercial diving operations.

A key element of the DAVD is a high-resolution, transparent glass head-up display (HUD) embedded directly inside Kirby Morgan® diving helmets. The HUD is controlled from the surface by the Dive Supervisor via the DAVD-Control Panel, allowing display of real-time 3D imagery of the diver’s environment in 1st or 3rd person perspective, regardless of the prevailing water visibility conditions.

In addition to the provision of AR (augmented reality) scene awareness, the Dive Supervisor is able to communicate seamlessly via real-time images, videos, technical drawings, text style messaging and step-by-step instructional sets.

All critical underwater points and features of interest critical for the safety and success of the diving mission can be modelled and displayed in real-time in the DAVD visualization software.

Effectively, the diver has complete on-demand access to all the technical data, know-how and support from the team on the surface to effect the best outcome of the mission.

DAVD is a US Navy ONR funded project which was developed for Coda Octopus sponsor NAVSEA. After extensive testing by NAVSEA, the new technology is now approved for US Navy use.
