Life Support Technologies was formed in 1986 to provide specialized mixed-gas, oxygen and life safety engineering services to improve operational safety in North Sea conditions at depths to 1,000 feet in manned diving and to 6,000 ft. with submersibles and Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV).
Life Support / Hamilton Research
were primary consultants in the development of NOAA Oxygen Enriched Air (NITROX) technologies to include the NOAA 32-36% NITROX tables and REPEX Decompression technologies for manned Underwater Habitats.
In 1992, LST / HRL were sole sourced by NASA to develop Astronaut Zero-G Simulation Training in preparation of the Hubble Space Telescope Repair. LST developed the breathing systems and decompression Tables used at the WETF Marshal Space Flight Center and Neutral Buoyance Lab, Johnson Space Flight Center.
LST / HRL Senior staff has 40+ years in underwater marine. bridge, dam and tunnel projects worldwide. LST just completed manned pressure interventions and provided medical / technical staffing to help complete four train tunnels planned by New York City’s Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) connecting the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) Sunnyside Yards in Queens, N.Y with Grand Central Station in Manhattan, NY.
In total, LST performed 382 manned pressure interventions over 71 days, at pressures up to 34 psi. AS part of our contract, LST provided Hamilton / Kenyon DCAP Decompression Tables, and board-certified hyperbaric physicians, Paramedics, and technicians to operate the special hyperbaric chambers in each TBM and provide medical support under hyperbaric conditions.
