What is water search and rescue?

When it comes to search and rescue missions underwater a team of divers are usually required, taking time to setup, and placing people in a dangerous environment. Subsea ROVs fix both issues with setup times of less than five minutes and the ability to completely remove humans from the equation.

How does water search and rescue work?

  1. A subsea ROV is placed into the water and dives down to the right depth. From here the team on the surface watch over the footage on a large screen and tagging anything that looks suspicious.
  2. If something compelling is found, a team of divers can be deployed to rescue the person, allowing for fast and efficient rescue missions.
  3. The subsea ROV is taken out of the water, washed off, and put back ready for the next search and rescue mission.

Benefits of using subsea ROVs

  • Subsea ROVs can be quickly deployed for faster response times.
  • Multiple subsea ROVs can be used at the same time allow for improved searches and a larger radius.
  • More people can get eyes on what's happening under the water for better decision making.
