In the late 1960s, the U.S. Navy launched a program inspired by the work and theories of one George Bond. That program, dubbed Sealab, would lead to the implementation of so-called saturation diving that allowed divers to live, work, eat and sleep hundreds of feet beneath the ocean’s surface in pressurized capsules. Lessons learned from the short-lived program are still in use today, utilized in covert operations and deep-sea exploration.
Houston, Texas-based Oceaneering has received the Subsea Innovation Award, sponsored by Maats Tech, at the 2019 Anual Offshore Support Journal Awards.

The ADCI Audit Initiative is designed to make ADCI companies stronger, smarter and their divers more safe. All members who complete this audit will have the peace of mind of knowing where they are succeeding and those areas that they can work on. Those companies who do not submit to an audit by March 1, 2020 face losing their ADCI membership.

At the California Institution for Men, a state prison in Chino, there’s a program that trains inmates to dive deep. At the on-site Marine Technology Training Center, students study commercial diving both underwater and in the classroom. Founded in 1970, the 18-month course has graduated hundreds of men—many of whom have gone on to jobs on oil rigs and ships and only 6 percent of whom have returned to prison.
The Art Guild of the Purple Isles and the History of Diving Museum were recognized for their commitment to the arts in schools through an interdisciplinary marine science project that required students to create an art installation out of wooden fish and clay reef construction.
