The Navy Experimental Diving Unit (NEDU) in conjunction with the Naval Coastal Systems Center (NCSC) conducted an evaluation of MK 15 MOD O UBA battery duration. Battery duration curves in various temperatures were developed, as was a new procedure for conducting predive curves in various temperatures were developed, as was a new procedure for conducting predive testing of the MK 15 UBA battery with a load tester. A new MK 15 UBA battery assembled by Seatronics, Inc. was also evaluated, and found to provide improved duration over the currently used battery by a minimum of 10 percent. A new oxygen addition solenoid for use in the MK 15 UBA was evaluated and found to be a suitable spare part replacement item for the current solenoid.
