ForewordDepartment of the Navy Naval Sea Systems Command 30 Nov 2005 Revision 5 of the U.S. Navy Diving Manual is a comprehensive update and includes the latest procedures and equipment currently being used by military working divers. You must review this manual in its entirety. This revision formally incorporates the Operational Risk Management (ORM) process into Navy dive planning. Though we work in an extremely hazardous and unforgiving environment, Navy diving's excellent safety record is founded in a strong tradition of careful operational planning and thoughtful risk assessment and management. Live to dive again by remembering established principles embodied in our maxim: Plan your dive and dive your plan. The Dive Manual cannot cover every possible contingency that will be faced in the field by the Diving Supervisor running the side. Therefore, confidently rely on your training, this manual and proven ORM principles and procedures to guide you in making decisions and in taking actions in order to protect your divers while completing your mission; be eternally vigilant. I would like to thank LCDR Paul Fleischman, who managed the colossal task of reviewing and revising this manual. He was directly and ably supported by Master Diver Fred Orns, Master Diver Steve Smith and Master Diver Byron Van Horn; their experience-based input was critical. In addition, I appreciate and thank Captain (Dr.) John Murray and Captain (Dr.) Dave Southerland for the multiple hours of effort they invested in this review. Finally, I must recognize and thank retired Captain (Dr.) Ed Flynn for his enlightened contribution an
