An ongoing FP7 project developing low cost localisation and tracking equipment to be used in maritime search and rescue equipment. Sensors installed on life jackets will enable interrogator equipment to localise onboard and overboard life jacket bearers.

Involvement of ASARP

The search and rescue airborne platform ASARP will be localising and tracking people overboard and transmitting data back to the search and rescue control centre real time. It is also assisting the coordination of the rescue mission through images and the particulars of the rescue site.
