One of the main reasons of the occurrence of missing is that the people are scattered by the tide. On account of this problem, hypothermia, fear and being less conspicuous by a rescue party, their survival rate drops suddenly.
According to the concept, each tube combines using GPS technology and the principle of a magnet. When the tubes gather together, it will increase the survival time of victims and raise the survival rate. 'NETWORK TUBE' can effectively deal with urgent maritime accidents and easily come into view of a rescue party to prevent a nasty accident.
