Named after Jacques-Yves Cousteau and Emile Gagnan’s revolutionary re-design of the underwater breathing apparatus, Aqua Lung now designs and produces dive regulator systems and SCUBA diving gear out of the United States.
In the early 1940s, the race was on to perfect underwater diving equipment. The main problem with technologies of the day being that they did not allow a diver enough time beneath the surface. Working with Emile Gagnan, an engineer at Air Liquide, Cousteau sought to develop a new and improved system, one that would dramatically increase potential dive time. Cousteau and Gagnan’s first system called the CG45, is the predecessor to modern day open-circuit diving systems. S.C.U.B.A diving has never been the same since.
The Aqua Lung, as it was coined, has gone through many iterations over the years. Today, the term refers to a wider variety of diving equipment made by the company of the same name: Aqua Lung, designer and manufacturer of some of the best diving equipment available.
