The inland hiking experts also recognize the value of having to be SEEN TO BE RESCUED!:
“…even something as simple as carrying a brightly colored bandanna and hanging it from a tree can be the difference between being found and staying lost — or as in Largay’s situation, the difference between life and death.”
Robotic drone technology will likely expand to read specific eddies and currents in the oceans to locate people lost at sea (as well as on land via imaging/recalling trails). #SeeRescueStreamer #videoSearchandRescue
Following the “lost at sea” death of two boys in Florida, there is a movement to change State law to provide boat owners with cash savings if they are equipped with EPIRB’s (safety device).
(Note: The “could of used a See Rescue Streamer” file continues to burst at the seams.)
You still need a visual signal for rescuers to find you as shown once again by this incident in Colorado where they knew his location (GPS/EPIRB) position, yet it still took 2 days to find him! (Your head is the size of a rock on land or a coconut in the water – both nearly impossible to see.) A signal mirror (requiring active manipulation and sunlight) saved him. The passive/continuous See Rescue Streamer would have also been useful.
#SeeRescueStreamer performed well at the North Pole. Thanks Dr. Jonas Vibell – glad you made it back!
#SeeRescueStreamer was well received in Geneva, Switzerland during the corporate jet event #ebace. It makes sense that the valuable occupants of high-end corporate jets would want the same protection that military aviators around the globe now rely on when it comes to emergency signaling on water or land. Thanks #CRS for getting the word out.
