The main goal of the research is to improve the search and rescue system at sea, especially the part related to the early detection of man at sea. Today's primary equipment for surviving in sea, required by SOLAS, is life jackets that is equipped with a whistle and a light. However, already today there are non SOLAS solutions that offer special transmitters that can help in fast and efficient finding, but they are mostly not standardized, and the equipment is relatively expensive. Transmitters on the frequencies 121.5 MHz and 406 MHz, as well as VHF transmitters for reception on AIS devices, stand out here.
The project would examine the possibilities of various solutions for fast and efficient detection of man at sea. The end result would be recommendations for improving the way people are discovered in the sea, i.e. the possibility of upgrading existing SOLAS solutions.
