Mike Cochran is the CEO of Cochran Consulting, Inc. He has been a prolific and ingenious inventor, designer and developer of dive computers and many other products during his career. Mike started his work in the decompression field working with NASA at their Weightless Environmental Training Facility. Later, he worked closely with Capt. Ed Thalmann of the US Navy for over a year to understand, convert and test his decompression algorithm and use it in a Cochran Dive Computer. Subsequently working with the Navy Experimental Diving Unit and the Navy SEAL community, his dive computer was used in the first open-water decompression computer-based dive in U.S. military history. Mike has 57 US patents. Among his many awards are an appointment as an Admiral in the Texas Navy (by Gov. Rick Perry) and recognition as "Texas Instrument's Most Prolific Inventor" (by James Fischer, VP TI). He is a private Pilot and an advanced scuba diver.
