Product development for an immersion suit includes the assessment of the end-user, the desired product performance, and the environment in which it will be used. The product must provide thermal protection from both heat and cold, as well as buoyancy and splash protection. In addition, it must be easy to don and doff, even in difficult conditions. The product development team must also consider how the product will be manufactured, tested, and maintained. By considering all of these factors, the product development team can create an immersion suit that meets the needs of the end-user while also being safe and reliable.
Maritime refers to anything relating to the sea, including navigation, shipping, fisheries, and coastal areas.
