TZ Aquanauts conducted underwater search readiness training at Seabase facilities.

Participants practiced underwater line handling, wreck penetration, Experimental Sample Tray assembly, confined emergency manuevers, and buddy breathing during dives.


Get back under water and find something to breathe!
Circuit swims and land dashes between dives helped divers train for endurance and autonomic control. Kazi Drone flights were operated to simulate multi-domain tasks. Go Teame!
