Brownie’s developing new tankless dive system

South Florida’s Brownie’s Marine Group is working on a new brand of tankless dive systems called bLU3.

The bLU3 brand will be headed by Blake Carmichael, son of BMG founder/CEO Robert Carmichael. Blake Carmichael co-engineered the prototype model, Nomad by bLU3, and is developing the brand with co-founder Wesley Siebenthal.

Nomad by bLU3 is an ultra-portable, tankless dive system. An air compressor floats above the surface in an all-in-one housing and pumps air through a 40-foot hose. The entire unit attaches to a backpack mount that doubles as a dive harness. It is battery-powered, charged with a single cable, and can be fully charged by an optional solar panel in about three hours.

“Our goal with the bLU3 line is to fill the void between snorkeling and SCUBA diving,” Blake Carmichael said in a company statement. “We want to make getting and staying underwater easier, more enjoyable, cheaper, and more rewarding than it currently is. And on our way to getting millions of new people under the water, we have a very important and exciting mission that can be accomplished – fully documenting the world’s shallow reefs around the world to help build a future of healthy oceans.”

The Nomad will have an integrated data recording system that will collect data – such as GPS, depth, temperature and more. These readings can then be uploaded to an online database via a mobile app. The goal is to prevent “Environmental Amnesia” – a term used to describe the unnoticed degradation of ocean health over decades.

The Nomad by bLU3 campaign recently premiered on Kickstarter to raise production capital and draw investors for further development.

According to Brownie’s, the bLU3 name reflects the company’s plan to roll out a series of three models. The “3” in place of an “e” also pays homage to Brownie’s Third Lung brand, the flagship product of the Pompano Beach, Florida-based company.
