The open source for projects and innovations for safer waters and better sea rescue.
A work in progress from the Swedish Sea Rescue Society. A place for any and all projects related to sea rescue. A place to share, a place to find, a place for cooperations to form, a place to call for project work that needs to be done.
a shaft-less propulsor to minimize impact of floating ropes and debris
Ship accidents usually produce a lot of floating debris. Rescue boats, weather equipped with a water jet or a propeller, are vulnerable to debris, and can be made useless for hours if a rope gets tangled and melts into a solid mass around the drive shaft.
a safer boating experience
My project is focused on the problem of getting back up in the boat after one has fallen over board. This is because many of the smallest boats, where most accidents happen, often lack any form of ladder or aid to get up.
My result is a concept proposal...
Development of a product solution for recovery to nearby ships - part of project FIRST
The project aims to create a scalable solution that enables all suitable ships to efficiently aid in mass rescue operations at sea, by recovering people in distress from survival crafts to safety on board.
Drone system to support Search and Rescue
This project is an exploration of how the Swedish Sea Rescue Society and similar Search and Rescue organizations might use a system where a central operator could remotely launch and control small aircrafts housed in automatic launching boxes at our rescue stations.
A collaborative methodology for understanding technology landscapes
During the summer of 2016 the RNLI embarked on a Technology Roadmapping exercise with the support of the Institute for Manufacturing’s Education and Consultancy Services (IfM ECS) and the assistance of third parties to help explore the future of search and rescue communications and ‘calling for help’ on, in...
Designed for the Swedish search and rescue needs
As the technology on boats and the way of using them in rescue operations develops, it sets new demands on the personal equipment.
Experiences gained from a life raft exercise
A unique 30 hour exercise in collaboration between
Chalmers and the Swedish Sea Rescue Society (SSRS). 11 participants got to
experience, as realistically as possible, an emergency situation at sea and to see which elements of risk that exists.
Finding a good construction and design for a coastal environment
For a good implementation of the use of drones in sea-rescue operations, there is a need to develop autonomous launching boxes for fixed-wing drones.
