Underwater wiring UAV / Underwater Rescue UAV

The most important thing for underwater cave rescue is the deployment of guide lines. At present, manual deployment is basically adopted. However, due to the complex terrain of the underwater cavern, the visibility in the water is extremely low, and the cave is full of unknowns, and you will die if you are not careful. As the only indicator in the water, the guide line is the lifeline of the diver. In response to the above problems, we use drones to deploy the guide line remotely, which is more efficient and safer. The tritium lamp on the guide line can be continuously and effectively lit for 24 years, illuminating the rescue path of the dive
