ISC Megalodon CCR

The ISC Megalodon Closed Circuit Rebreather

ISC Megalodon Rebreather

The ISC Megalodon CCR or more fondly called “The Meg” is a Variable Volume, Mixed Gas, Constant PO2, Closed Circuit Rebreather used by Technical and Military divers around the world and has been used from 20 meters to depths reaching as deep as 225 meters.
With its versatility of design, it can be configured to meet any level of diving and keep pace with the “Meg divers” skills.

Fundamentally the ISC Megalodon was designed for the most demanding dives with consideration for the diver and their needs. Therefore the Megalodon is the first and only CCR system that has an open architecture frame-work to support a variety of CO2 scrubbing systems, electronics, gas supply cylinders, and harnesses and buoyancy devices.

This modular approach enables the user to configure the CCR to meet operational requirements. The Meg has also been used as a side mounted system for penetration into extreme enclosed overhead environments or doubled up as a twin system for CCR redundancy for extreme deep diving operations where carrying open-circuit bailout is impractical.
It’s design addresses not only the basic requirements of performance that a true 3rd party tested CCR must undergo, but also the other considerations that are not normally considered, such as travel concerns and conducting repairs in remote locations.

The Meg is also the first CCR system to successfully integrate other commercially available OEM company’s dive computers and system controllers into existing ISC automated oxygen injection controller, (APECS™) system. All integrated electronics pass all current regulatory requirements.

How is a Meg instructor selected?
ISC does not want a lot of instructors as this affects the quality of the product and training. To be considered to be a ISC instructor, you must own a Meg, and have a minimum of 100 hours or be a current CCR instructor with a recognized CCR and training agency, and have at least 50 hours logged on the Meg. You must be in a geographical area and hold the language requirements needed for that area. A peer review will be done by other instructors to see if the candidate has a positive reputation in the dive industry and is recognized as a diving leader that would be an asset to ISC and its customers. The candidate must assist with two ISC Meg end-user classes under the supervision of a Meg approved instructor and be evaluated on a 3rd class that they will teach and be evaluated by 2 ISC approved Instructor trainers familiar with the language and area.
