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.
The Focus Group Report, Market Survey Report, and Assessment Report on Diver Propulsion Vehicles are limited distribution vehicles, and are available in the SAVER Community on First Responder Communities of Practice (FRCoP).
