The "Heart" of the PonyPak System is Air Redundancy. Front mounted (also side mount convertible, underwater), PonyPak's integrated 4 Port Gas Block allows "never before" safety options. These include the ability......
The GasPak independently distributes high pressure gas to FOUR Divers OR Surface Technicians, from any source: Scuba or SCBA tanks, or HP compressor. The "variable" HP sources is then.....
For Commerical Divers - heavy, difficult to manage, 2" hoses, with "duct-taped" ancillary lines .... is ancient technology.
PonyPak delivers every required diver service, through a SINGLE umbilical - size of your little finger! "Everything" includes...
Video-Data-Comms Package (VDCPak) is important. But no more so than complete real-time documentation of everything seen, heard and spoken, by every diver and tender... including their location!
And that includes real-time "mirror" recording (and communication) not just locally, but also remotely, on any PC/Tablet or Smart Phone on the planet! The VideoPak......
For Commercial Divers who need Surface Supplied Air, and clear front torso: PonyPak's new 1st Stage regulator provides a High Pressure Gas IN Port.
Connect the Umbilical ReelPak to the InfiniPak, the diver's Main tank is refilled, "breath for breath" and be "infinitely" maintained at any tank pressure up to 3,000 psi..... The innovative design includes......
This preliminary website shows only some of the components we've developed for life-support applications. Additional components allow our umbilical system to work identically in terrestrial operations, including confined spaces, hazmat and in time EOD.

Short Video, showing all PonyPak Products for both U/W and Surface "Confined Space" operations.
Demonstrate the application of PonyPak Systems, Inc. (PSI) to the Subsea market. This is our "beachhead market." The technology was originally developed for this market.
However, once Municipal, Military, Commercial, Industrial, Transportation, Scientific and Educational markets viewed our disruptive technologies, they realized the solutions we created far exceed the abilities of all currently available life-support systems. The following videos provide an initial introduction to the world of Subsea Life Support. Videos on the Terrestrial application will follow shortly.

Simulating an equipment entanglement, the diver switches Integrated 4-Port Gas Block to the PonyPak.
Then performs a full equipment ditch without removing his FFM.
The "Escape" is from within the engine room of a shipwreck, at 80' depth. Ascent Rate: Normal / Full 3 min. Safety Stop
First Deep Dive Test of the Umbilical System by
Designer, William Messner, at Mermet Springs, IL
Simulates an entangled diver, inside at 36" tunnel.
Diver performs a full equipment ditch and "escape" without removing his FFM, entirely within a highly confined underwater space, at approximately 40' depth.
Demonstration Test, by Public Safety Divers
Two Full Face Mask Divers "Buddy Breath" with no diver removing his mask!
Demonstrates complete equipment ditch & escape, with no removal of FFM ---- in seconds!

The VDCPak is the 1st generation, (Single Diver Analog )
The VDCPak is now 1080P, and supports
Four Divers with Video, Audio, GPS and
3G/4G Real-Time broadcast to any PC/Tablet/Smart Phone
In the event of equipment entanglement....self-extraction may be the only way to safety.
Perfect Balance & Trim - No obstruction during "work or play"
