LuX / Lighting Life-Buoy


In the case of marine accidents, it is crucial to search and rescue the victims as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, rescuers often have a hard time finding victims in dark sea water or turbulent weather. The LuX is a lighting life-buoy, highly detectable in dark environments or harsh weather. The ultimate goal of LuX is to save the victims by reducing the time of search and rescue, to prevent the onset of hypothermia, and to guide the victims to safety.
