The development of a functional hard suit that eliminates the problems of decompression but has the ability to do work at great depths and high external pressures, has been a problem facing ocean engineers for many years. The development of a suitable one atmosphere diving suit has been the quest of underwater explorers, for the past 300 years. The recent development of a pressure balanced fluid filled rotary joint, and its placement on the NEWTSUIT, allows for unprecedented mobility and flexibility in a hard suit.
