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!

ALWAYS REMEMBERED: Colin Wiest, TZ Friend and Mentor -- If you seek his spirit you need only find your courage
Keywords: - -
Colin Wiest, TZ.SEC-7 TZA TZMD TZMP was killed in a high-speed collision incident while executing emergency evasive course correction during vehicle test maneuvers in the southern Utah desert. The Incident occured near St. George on October 25th, 2014..."Colin's ability to build rapport stands always next to his excellent adherence to procedural operations and a self-initiative that stems from his apparent desire to not only complete his work and protect his clients, but to excel at both a professional and personal level. Colin is a professional who consistently asks the best of himself and leads through demonstrable action and integrity. I have always been confident placing the safety of myself and my clients under Colin's supervision"


9-9 LIVEDIVE: locating and entering the compartment of a sunken Cessna 310 airplane in approx. 45ft of water and securing a geocache hidden inside the cockpit

The Live Dive was a two day, four dive training exercise focused on building team cohesion, compass navigation, autonomic containment and dive emergency response development among aquanauts. TZ Aquanatics members located the plane wreck, secured the materials inside the geocache and deployed an Experimental Sample Tray (EST).


TZA GLOOM SHADOW: Watch how deep the Teame will go to get the bodies

TZA Search & Recovery exercises were conducted in waters that were at a temperature of 55F degrees at the surface.


SALVAGE SUBMERSION: TZ Aquanatics were required to locate and enter a submerged twin-engine 10-seat Beech C185 at a depth of 55 feet, deploy an experimental sensor tray, and conduct simulated emergency search and rescue dives acting as an air-deployed "feet wet" rapid reaction force under live-fire conditions.

The Aquatics phase of Jump and Thump took place over the course of two days. Subsequent dives required participants to locate a sunken rowboat at 80 feet and prepare entry into an underwater vent pipe leading to a cave with extreme restrictions at 140 feet, all part of a vast underground system of water connecting seven sister lakes nestled among the surrounding red mesas.


CORANADO COOPERATIVE: A multi-day event involving TZMP and TZA activities. Participants engaged an early morning 18-mile ride under pack on bicycle carrying a TZ underwater submersible sensor package to the forward disembarkation point. The dive profile involved a two-site two-site day ending with a return 18-mile return ride.

TZ aquanauts dove in La Jolla kelp forest and La Jolla beach area to depths in excess of 65 ft. Following the dive, TZ aquanauts were required to exploit indigenous personnel on their own initiative for transport to the final objective
