Ocean Opportunity Inc. has spearhead the development of a compact, low-cost, and incredibly simple oxygen rebreather named ‘Rebreather Day 1’ (RD1).
The recent 21st century rebreather boom has focused on mixed-gas rebreather systems for deeper diving, so while rebreathers are not new, cost and perceived complexity has placed some limit on market growth and broad acceptance.
We believe that rebreather technology plays a critical role in evolving the life aquatic, and that true success has to start very early in one’s diving career. RD1 makes this early adoption more practical and economical by placing this powerful tool in more people’s hands and ingraining good practices from ‘Day 1’. This will allow for a more organic transition into mixed-gas rebreathers and broader market acceptance over time.
The ‘Rebreather Day 1’ unit is actively used by our partners for shallow water programs including:
- educational workshops for students at the openwater diver level
- commercial marine harvesting
- experimenting with novel human intervention protocols
As the Rebreather Day 1 project evolves, we anticipate bringing a production quality oxygen rebreather to market with strategic partners.
We are seeking strategic project ambassadors. Interested parties are welcomed to contact us for more details.
