Expérience Sagitaire I


The present document is the property of COMEX SAS. It has been entrusted to the ORPHY laboratory, which scanned and uploaded it. COMEX (Compagnie Maritime d'Expertises), established in 1962, has positioned itself in the offshore activities sector, where it held a leading international position, becoming the world's foremost company in engineering, technology, and human or robotic underwater interventions. Comex designed a Hyperbaric Testing Center in 1969 and developed its own research programs on various breathing mixtures used in deep-sea diving (helium and later hydrogen). These research efforts led to spectacular advancements in this field, including several world records, both in real conditions and simulations. Comex still holds the world record at-701 meters, achieved in its chambers during Operation HYDRA 10.
