This is a listing of maritime search & rescue (SAR) manuals and other publications from different SAR groups and organizations around the world. Given the overlap with general seamanship, some listings include more general boating publications or maritime SAR/safety chapters of publications.
Cloud Center for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle
The purpose of the project is to break the connection between a specific user and the drone. The aim of the project is that several users should be able to handle multiple drones from a central. A link between an internet-based platform called Thingworx and a drone with a built-in controller called...
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 Manufacturingâ€™s Education and Consultancy Services (IfM ECS) and the assistance of third parties to help explore the future of search and rescue communications and â€˜calling for helpâ€™ on, in...
The RNLI has conducted a design sprint on the challenge of communicating at point of rescue. This was an idea submitted to the RNLI's Open Innovation Platform by the Station Manager at Gravesend Lifeboat Station in Kent.
Electrifying the Rescuerunner
How might we make a Rescuerunner follow a bigger rescue boat automatically, on a safe distance? A mechanical solution.
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 Boat Driven and Powered Totally by Solar Energy
For a humanitarian and emergency aid outpost/ boat, hundreds of horsepower are not required for a 12,000 pound, forty foot boat such as the MOG Solar Electric Boat to move through the water safely. All electricity for drive and appliances comes from the solar array atop the boat, currently over...
Part of project FIRST - report in Swedish
This is a thesis project made in collaboration between Chalmers University of Technology and the Swedish Sea Rescue Society with the aim of developing a better method of connecting life rafts in preparation for lifting.
Development of a product that helps the user climb back into the boat.
If a person falls overboard one can find it very hard to climb back. This combined with the fact that small boats has more often a lack of rescue equipment, our goal with this project is to develop a self rescue product. It will help the person to climb...
UAV system controlled via the cellular network
A UAV system controlled via a cellular network
This is a project to develop a system to evaluate streaming remote video and controlling a drone over the internet.
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.
Development of a path following system for a RescueRunner
This path following system allows the RescueRunner to follow a bigger rescue boat to the scene of the accident without the help of a driver.
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.
Rescue From beneath
Unmanned Underwater Rescue Catamaran (URC). This is additional information and explanation to my illustration of the UURC. The task of the UURC: Resque operations mainly for people in water, preventing drowning or freezing.
Ett kylsystem fÃ¶r torrdrÃ¤kter
Svenska SjÃ¶rÃ¤ddningssÃ¤llskapet anvÃ¤nder idag en Ã¶verlevnadsdrÃ¤kt bestÃ¥ende av en torrdrÃ¤kt och nÃ¥gon form av isolering. DrÃ¤kterna Ã¤r gjorda fÃ¶r att hÃ¥lla en person levande i kallt vatten upp till en timme varfÃ¶r de ofta Ã¤r fÃ¶r varma fÃ¶r att ha pÃ¥ sig i andra situationer. Detta projekt genomfÃ¶rs fÃ¶r...
Remote controlled line puller for surface rescue
When a person falls through thin ice, rescue attempts with todays equipment can be difficult. A small unmanned vehicle could be used to provide flotation and a rope out to the person in distress.
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.
Chalmers projektgrupp 19
VÃ¥r grupp skall, innan sista veckan i LP4, utveckla ett integrerat kylsystem med temperaturreglering till befintliga torrdrÃ¤kter fÃ¶r att gÃ¶ra dem behagliga att ha pÃ¥ sig i varierande miljÃ¶er.
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...
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.
Evacuation from liferafts to saftey aboard rescuing ships
This is an examination paper that evaluate the ways of efficiently evacuating rescue rafts to nearby ships.
Optimize, Rearrange, Improve
The project is about optimizing different spaces on an already existing rescue-boat to improve the environment and accesibility for all users
Some ideas of how to control the temperature inside a drysuit
It's easy to stay warm in a drysuit by simply put on more clothes but how do you keep cold on those scorching summer days or at times when you have to work really hard?
A device that easily can be connected to the rescuerunners water jet.
Rescuerunner is a waterjet driven jetski used by the Swedish sea rescue society. A rescuerunner with a fire extinguisher will be first at the scene and can be an option where bigger boats or firetrucks canâ€™t get close enough.
Different transport solutions for the Rescuerunner.
The main tasks of the towing device are to eliminate or minimize the time needed to attach the rescuerunner aft of the main boat and to enable towing at sea. The outcome of this project consists of three different concepts.
A craft for sea rescue during winter when the ice neither holds nor breaks
This concept is developed for use in lakes and bays during winter when the ice neither holds nor breaks. The craft consist of two caterpillar tracks and uses a more environmental friendly powertrain in comparison to most crafts of today.
Improving a well-known icon
The Rescue Bouy is a modern interpretation of the common life bouy with greatly enhanced features and user-friendly interface.
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.
Extending the life of Rescuerunner over the winter season
Transforming the existing rescue unit Rescuerunner to a hovercraft in order to achieve cost-efficient and flexible sea rescue in both ice and water, 365 days a year.
