This web site is intended to inform the interested diving public about the ISC Megalodon CCR or Closed Circuit Rebreathers made by the Inner Space Systems Corporation in Centralia, Washington State, USA. All ISC products are third party tested under stringend ISO and CE guidelines.
ISC - InnerSpace Systems Corp has announced the CE mark for the APECS 2.7 variant of the Megalodon rebreather. This milestone has been some time in the making and in concert with the Mk 28 Mod 0 certification by the US Navy places the Megalodon in a unique position.
The Megalodon is a highly configurable rebreather; the configuration certified under EN14143:2009 consists of an APECS Primary & Secondary eCCR head upon a standard size can with a five pound radial scrubber, over the shoulder counter lungs and standard DSV. The standard CE configuration also includes cylinders, first stages and backplate and harnesses along with the Tetradon wing.

ProTec Dive Center & Advanced Training Facility located in Playa del Carmen and Tulum, Mexico are a partner in ISC's newly established World Traveler program where ISC Megalodon Rebreather owners can get a Megalodon Can and Radial Scrubber free of charge in order to reduce weight when traveling and diving around the world.
The Megalodon CCR Rebreather is a fine piece of diving machine sporting double heavy-duty o-ring seals on all connections, a heavy-duty aluminum stack where the electronics and Co2 absorbent canister is living in. Individualism is the motto of the day when it comes how to carry the unit ranging from Transpack soft packs to slim or full size stainless steel, aluminum or ABS backplates or even Armadillo sidemount systems. The Automatic Diluent Valve ( ADV ) is a nice safety feature addition during busy events or runaway descents. The Heads Up Display ( HUD ) is a sweet dream to dive with enabling the diver to watch the Po2 at all times, even the busiest ones.

The services, diving, support and training on this web site are provided by Andreas W. Matthes a.k.a. Matt who is an experienced CCR Megalodon diver, Instructor & Instructor Trainer with CCR Rebreather diving experience ranging back to 1997. Matt is residing currently in Playa del Carmen located in the Rivera Maya, Quintana Roo, Mexico. Matt is working and diving out of the ProTec Dive Center's & Advanced Training Facilities ProTec Playa in Playa del Carmen and ProTec Tulum in Tulum, Mexico where we offer Rebreather support in the form of selected Rebreather spare parts, Rebreather tank rental, bailout tank rental, Co2 absorbent (Sofnolime), oxygen sensors as well as air, oxygen and trimix fills to 3000 psi - 200 bar.
The CCR Megalodon Rebreather is delivered in four versions, either a computer controlled Closed Circuit Rebreather (e-CCR) or a mechanicaly or manually controlled Closed Circuit Rebreather (m-CCR) with Mini, Cave, Regular or Extended Can size as well as the newly developed Predator and Pathfinder CCR Rebreathers
In the electronic controlled APECS version an onboard computer controls and changes the oxygen partial pressure (Po2) in the breathing gas circulating inside the breathing loop to the demand and input of the diver.
In the mechanic or manual controlled COPIS version the diver is reading the Po2 in the loop via a Po2 readout and injects manually the oxygen needed to maintain the desired Po2 into the Rebreather.
The Megalodon CCR can be used as a nitrox unit, normoxic trimix unit and is trimix capable to a depth of more than 500 feet / 150 meters. The CCR Megalodon Rebreathers are currently used for a wide range of diving applications such as recreational diving, cave diving, wreck diving or technical diving.
The Megalodon was the ancestor of our sharks living some 1.6 - 25 million years ago, was as long as 80 feet / 24 meter and was the largest predator that ever lived in the ocean.
Diving Rebreathers can result in serious injury if not done correctly. Propper training and protocol is required to prevent hypercapnia, hypoxia and hyperoxia. Training and purchase of a Megalodon CCR Rebreather is available with me in Mexico, or world wide as I will travel to your location and train you in your local waters, rivers, quarry, ocean, reef, cave, wreck or pond to maximize your training experience.
ProTec Dive Center Playa and Tulum are both partners of the newly ISC Global Travel Program that allows Megalodon Rebreather owners to travel without the Can and Scrubber as ISC is providing a Can and Radial Scrubber free of charge for traveling Megalodon Rebreather owners at selected locations.
