Nancy McGee (USA) became the first woman to pilot the Exosuit in 2015. Developed and built in North Vancouver by Nuytco Research Ltd, this hard metal dive suit allows divers to operate safely down to a depth of 300 m (1000 ft) and yet still have exceptional dexterity and flexibility to perform delicate work. The amazing technology of the Exosuit atmospheric diving system (ADS) maintains a cabin pressure of the surface (14.7 psi) and still allows the suit to bend due to a unique rotary joint invented by Dr. Phil Nuytten.
