Held on the 23-25 February at the Morial Convention Center, JFD will be located on stand 817.  We will be displaying the latest information on COBRA, along with promoting our new service capability Service+.


Meet the team

Our Sales Managers Graeme Clark and Scott Lee will be on the stand to provide information on the capabilities provided by JFD and the National Hyperbaric Centre in both the commercial and defence sectors.

Come and talk to our stand team about COBRA our unique bailout system designed and developed as part of the Divex range of rebreathers.  It provides up to 45 minutes of fully independent breathing gas in an emergency scenario.

We would also welcome the opportunity to tell you about our new Service+ offering which is a formalised service we have been providing for many of our clients over the life cycle of equipment and systems put into service by JFD over the last 20 years.  Service+ can support clients with all aspects of dive system asset works ranging from equipment servicing, calibration, system condition reports, re-commissioning through to full-system life extension programmes to satisfy Class requirements.
