Maritime Rescuing Drone / Maritime safety

Maritime Rescuing Drone
Maritime Rescuing Drone

We designed this “maritime rescuing drone” to allow victims more time for their rescuers to come. It casts a lifebuoy from the air to the location of a victim as a support on the water to preserve their life for rescue. In order to be able to locate a victim on the water, this drone is in orange or other bright colors so that it can be easily identified. To be environmental-friendly, our drone can generate its own power by solar panels and lithium batteries. This “maritime rescuing drone” can be deployed at any seashore or onboard medium to large size ships.
