CHRISTIAN ST. CLAIRE
P.O. Box 750850
United States of America
PETALUMA, CALIF. USA -
Christian St. Claire is known world-wide in certain industry circles including the scuba diving industry where he set a number of standards and trends in the development/invention of professional diving equipment.
They include the Sea-Belt tm, Sea-Grip tm, Uni-Quik tm, OctoClip tm, 123 System tm (attachment system), Gage Gard tm, Master Clip tm, Quik-Fill tm, Quik-Bleed (units sold to Johnson Space Center Nasa White Sands Testing facility NSSF National Submarine Service Facilities)
Some of the consulting clients and or projects include:
1990 - NEDU (Navy Experimental Diving Unit) Panama City Beach, Florida
Co-development of computer protection devices with Alloy Marine Products Novato, CA US Product Name Gage-Gard tm
1994 - RJE International contractor to U. S. Navy Seals San Diego, California, for whom St.Claire
designed specialized equipment for underwater navigation and attachments to satisfy
Environmental limitations while increasing the Seals navigation capabilities and resolutions.
1994 - Timex Corporation, EL (Electro Luminescence) EL application developments targeting primarily Underwater Lighting Systems
applications and Heads up Displays.
1994 - Casio U.S.A. Corporation interface for precursor of present PDA proposal accepted and implemented.
Worked with Mr. Itoh himself in Research and Development. no fees were asked for nor accepted.
1995 - X Development Corporation, San Rafael, California
Involved with the first heads up display for underwater divers.
1996 - Co-founder, Nitrox Technologies Inc. Petaluma, California
Air separation using membrane technology primarily for diving purposes (40 percent oxygen recovery from ambient
atmosphere in one linear process step)
Biggest Oxygen producing machine on the world at 100 cubic foot per minute in the island of Roatan Honduras
1996 - Texas A & M University, Houston, Texas, Institute of Nautical Archeology
(MED-INA) for whom specialized air separation systems and filling equipment were designed (The filling system was
donated personally by St.Claire) and sent to Turkey for a four month around the clock underwater excavation believed to hold the
key to modern shipping scenarios (more information by request).
1997- Agfa Gevahert Optical Division (a Bayer Company) Agfa Ephoto 1680 work on digital user's interface release 1998
(digital camera with user friendly and intuitive interface and voted #1 overall in optical, digital, and interface).
1997- National Geographic Expedition (the first all-out effort to witness the coral spawning over hundreds of miles of ocean which
happens simultaneously (nobody knows why yet), but the moon may be the common denominator in synchronizing the event)
Devices were designed and manufactured by Christian St.Claire for above and under water usage to synchronize
between divers and ships' teams in the effort to document and record the event.
1998 - Nedu (Navy Experimental Diving Unit) Panama City Beach, Florida
Air separation machine designed for advanced diving systems in response to the Navy new Nitrox Diving Program resurection.
1998 - www.seamagine.com Claremont, California Five submarines, worked on oxygen sensing problem.
(Two more submarines under construction.)
Update: as of 20051110 Mel Fisher purchased the most advanced sub from SeaMagine.com
for eco tourism and research Submarine based in Costa Rica
1998 - C. Crane Company
St.Claire was the first on the world to develop a white LED Flashlight in 1997.
The C.Crane Company http://www.ccrane.com/white-led-flashlight.aspx received a 2 LED flashlight shortly after.
Christian St.Claire white LED flashlight utility U.S. Patent No. 6,168,288
Christian St.Claire is directly responsible for 800,000 to 1,000,000 tons of alkaline batteries not reaching
the refuse disposal in the U.S.A. alone. as of 20040101 Press release to follow .
1998 - EOD (Explosive Ordinance Detail) Navy, Department of Defense
Specifications for a flashlight where given A- candle power B- magnetic signature C-autonomy of batteries (lighting duration).
All were exceeded by a wide margin of three hours burn time specification. Demands A -Candle power was exceeded
B-Magnetic signature was below Navy standards & C- was translated from 3 hours to five days+. (125hours) www.tek-tite.com
Note: this flashlight became the "Expedition" model in the Civilian market distributed by the C.Crane Company Fortuna, California
1998 - Mosquito Scooter Company www.mosquitocompany.com
Trouble shooting on engineered parts pre-production.
Major warranty issues were addressed and corrected with NanoLube www.NanoLube.com NanoLube@Gmail.com
1999 - to present Aggressor Fleet and Peter Hughes Fleet .
Both are part of the most prestigious live- aboard diving ships. Their combined fleet is navigating most waters of the world
at any given time. They have a combined fleet of over 30 vessels all with estate rooms and luxury accommodations.
Web links to follow shortly.
1999 - Anthony's Key Resort Roatan Island Honduras where St. Claire designed a high pressure air delivery system
(upward of 4500 PSI) able to fill 24 tanks simultaneously: 2 banks of 10 + 4 segregated lines for continuous Nitrox
Delivery, all by using Pneumatic clamping designed by Christian StClaire saving countless hours to the system's
operator while increasing safety.
Not to mention that this duties were actually accomplished within the time allotted with less stress on 4 operators between
the boat docks and the filling station.
A similar station is being designed by Christian StClaire for a resort in BVI where the operations are going to be duplicated
to the docks, saving even more time and effort.
1999 - Lagunitas Brewery Petaluma, California The bottling line became close to 100 percent
maintenance free on the parts treated. Downtime was frequent putting all employees
downstream idling out of work for hours while the machine was being repaired.
2002 - Artis Richard Duben Sebastopol, California USA
Integration of trendy Acrylic art with advanced technologies in LED lighting
2005 - E-Glide Company Santa Monica, CA US
Christian StClaire redesigned and prototyped what became the fastest electrical skateboard on the World
at over 20 miles per hour in 2 seconds, all Made in USA
Video will be Available on www.EglideXtreme.com around December 20051215 visit regularly for updates
Cutting edge Technologies will be incorporated on certain models geared toward the Extreme Techno Freaks
such as Christian StClaire himself.
Diverse factory efficiency and tooling optimizing work.
Consultations performed in U.S and abroad since 1994.
