CRSQ / Mass Sea Rescue System


CRSQ is a live feedback positioning system developed to provide a better overview and faster search during mass rescue operations at sea. Emergency tracking beacons are fitted to emergency equipment such as life vests and life rafts.

With more accurate information and positioning data the Sea Rescue Centre can manage and organize the operation better while sending out information to rescue resources. That will provide a more efficient rescue operation and faster search. It also provides the possibility to prioritize those individuals in more need of medical supervision already at a planning stage of the rescue operation.
