Diver Augmented Vision Display (DAVD) is a heads-up display prototype created at the Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division. The prototype fits into a Kirby Morgan dive helmet - the same helmet presently used by military and commercial divers, and was created with a 3D printer. DAVD offers situational awareness, or "sector sonar", that enables topside divers to provide visual communications to divers below surface. The real-time operational data enables divers to be more effective and safe in their missions -- providing expanded situational awareness and increased accuracy in navigating to a target such as a ship, downed aircraft, or other objects of interest.
