An all-in-one dive system for the true adventurer

Our engineers are re-imagining NOMAD.

Through our work developing NEMO, we’ve learned a lot about manufacturing our systems and discovered incredible ways to enhance efficiency and user design.

Now, NOMAD will be an evolution of NEMO. Slightly larger than NEMO but still impressively small, compact, and lightweight. A nice complement to your NEMO for times you wish to dive deeper than 10 feet. Seamlessly collects valuable environmental data as part of our mission to turn every BLU3 diver into a citizen scientist.

Best for: New divers with a high interest in ocean exploration. Small vessels, shore and remote dives.

Expected launch date: Summer 2019

Dimensions: TBD

Run time:  60+ minutes

Depth: NOMAD’s max depth is yet to be determined but it will allow users the opportunity to enjoy our waters’ first atmosphere to the fullest.

Price: $1999 or less

Key Features:

  • Backpack
  • Digital interface
  • Battery alarm
  • Auto-inflation
  • Data recording

 

We did not meet our Kickstarter goal but NOMAD is still in progress thanks to the support of our parent company, Brownie’s Marine Group. Interested in bringing NOMAD to market as soon as possible? Consider investing in BWMG – Learn More.

 

NOMAD is currently under development, many improvements and innovations will take place prior to production in order to bring forth the ultimate, beginner-friendly, dive system to you by summer 2019.

How it works

Put simply: NOMAD floats on the surface of the water while a compressor takes fresh air and pumps it right to the diver through a specialized hose.

More technical: An air compressor floats above the surface in an innovative, all-in-one, while a hose and second stage regulator provide air to the diver. The compressor only sends air when needed by monitoring pressure in the hose, which conserves battery. The entire unit is battery-powered – charged with a single cable and can even be fully charged by an optional solar panel in about 3 hours.

Data Collection

Part of our mission at BLU3 is to develop a sensor package that seamlessly collects environmental data while you dive. We plan to develop integrated sensors to collect valuable data – such as GPS, depth, temperature (and many more to come) – in order to assist researchers and empower ordinary citizens. By using NOMAD + the sensor package, you’ll effortlessly become a citizen scientist. 

The goal is to prevent “Environmental Amnesia” – a term used to describe the unnoticed decline of ocean health over decades. We have to keep track of what is happening in order to stop it from happening. 

All you’ll have to do is connect NOMAD to your mobile app and it’ll automatically sync to an online database. The development of the sensor package is underway, but we cannot guarantee that it will be in production by the time that the first NOMAD units are sent out. Stay tuned so that you can keep up-to-date on our development in this area.
