SAVER Project: Diver Propulsion Vehicles

Diver propulsion vehicles (DPVs) allow divers to be towed behind the DPV while holding onto handles or being attached to a brindle or harness. DPVs can improve the mobility of responders and help them conserve energy during dive operations, such as underwater search and rescue, underwater investigation, and disaster assessments.

Please contact NUSTL@hq.dhs.gov regarding access to the following additional documents: Focus Group Report, Market Survey Report, and Assessment Report on Diver Propulsion Vehicles.

Find this project in the FEMA Authorized Equipment List and InterAgency Board Interactive Standardized Equipment List.
