Below are Nammu-Tech's plans for the development of the Red Series CCR. These plans are fluid and liable to change over the next few months. Nevertheless, these are the broad strokes we are working towards.
Examining existing designs to allow for different production techniques and materials.
Form factor changes
Taking advantage of different manufacturing techniques to allow for a more ergonomic form factor as well as other features such as a canister water jacket to improve thermal properties and accessory attachment points.
Looking at ways to improve the assembly and maintenance of the unit.
New Handset design
Changing the design of the handset housing to allow for a more efficient and robust assembly, a reversible display and a new attachment system.
new m.a.v design
Changing the M.A.V form factor to improve ergonomics, weight and ease of use by reducing the spring tension.
new titanium frame & harness
Finishing touches on our frame and harness, made of titanium and carbon composites that reduces weight and allows for a wider variety of cylinder sizes to be mounted.
A complete redesign of the wing to allow for redundancy, stronger materials and improved lift whilst on the surface. All within a form factor that fits the frame and the diver.
SEPTEMBER - NOVEMBER:
CE & UK CA certification
Completing physical tests at Qinetic such as W.O.B and hydrostatics to test smaller breathing loop and different materials. Updating technical file for certification.
SEPTEMBER - OCTOBER:
Diver support portal
Creation of an App that allows easy access to technical support, servicing, upgrades and dive logging.
rebranding & new product launch
The launch of our new CCR brand, encompassing all the research, development and evolution of the VMS Red Series, along with Nammu-Tech's passion for innovation and customer relations.
NOVEMBER - DECEMBER:
Start of production of the new unit, compliant to ISO 9001.
LATE SPRING 2022:
Future proofing electronics by upgrading to faster processors, allowing for easier upgrades to the handset and life support software whilst simplifying assembly. Increasing overall battery life. Improving the redundancy of the life support systems.
Adding Buhlmann algorithms with gradient factors to both handsets. Increasing handset screen size. Automatic synchronisation of deco gases between handsets. More to follow!
