U.S. Navy Dive Tank

The Navy’s Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Mobile Dive Tanks are 4,400 gallon (10 X 10 cube), dynamic displays that allows interaction with the public and perspective recruits for the Navy Special Warfare and Navy Special Operations (NSW/NSO) programs.

Up to two divers will be in the dive tank demonstrating military diving techniques and playing an occasional game of “tic-tac-toe” with any interested bystanders. A static display of early 19th century to modern day diving gear is on display with three to four Sailors in the NSW or NSO programs standing by to answer questions. In addition to the dive tank display there is an Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) exhibit consisting of a modern bomb disposal suit and a bomb disposal robot.

The EOD Dive Team is based out of Naval Amphibious Base Little Creek, Virginia and will be showcasing career opportunities in the U.S. Navy’s elite Special Operations community of SEALs, Special Warfare Combatant-Craft Crewmen (SWCCs), Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technicians (EOD), and Fleet Divers.
