Patrona is a man overboard rescue system for sailing yachts and ships. If a person falls over board, an autonomous rescue craft is automatically launched, finds the position by a signal of an integrated life vest and brings the person back to the yacht. At the same time, a recovery ramp enflates. Through the 360° degree interface of the autonoumous rescue craft it is possible to construct a life-saving connection between the folding port of the life vest and the identical port at the ramp. The process of recovering is completed by pulling the person back onto the deck of the ship via a winch.
