Inflatable pontoon capsule, significantly increasing the chances of survival on the high seas

The salvation of drowning, as claimed, a classic, the work of the drowning themselves. But rescue will become much more effective if there is a new development on board the ship – the inflatable pontoon capsule SeaKettle. Now, in just a few minutes, among the raging waves, you can expand the tent and escape from the elements in it, waiting for rescuers.

Despite the fact that modern ships have stepped far ahead of their wooden sailing ancestors, shipwrecks still occur with enviable regularity. Ferries flip over, liners fly over cliffs, and boats continually flip over during a storm.

At such moments, a person runs the risk of being overboard and face alone with the elements in the open sea. The time for salvation is very limited. After all, even if you stay afloat, sea salt and the inhabitants of the depths will do their job.

That is why every ship pays great attention to lifeboats. However, this is far from the best option: they are fragile, not comfortable and not stable on the waves. The SeaKettle project is supposed to solve all these and some other, less obvious, problems of the shipwreck.

SeaKettle is an inflatable pontoon capsule that unfolds independently after pulling checks. Pumps SeaKettle electric pump. It is important that the capsule works even in stormy conditions. Due to its specific shape, the inflatable capsule is incredibly stable, in addition, it protects a person in distress from sea water and wind. Such a life buoy greatly increases the chances of survival.

An important detail of SeaKettle is the presence in the capsule of the simplest desalination machine that does not require electricity. During daylight hours, this desalination plant is capable of supplying water for 5-6 people. The presence of fresh water in such situations is very important, because if the human body is able to survive 5-10 days without food, then it is problematic to survive more than 2-3 days without fresh water.

Finally, SeaKettle is equipped with the most rescue buoy, which will transmit the SOS signal at different radio frequencies and provide a GPS signal that will quickly and accurately determine the location of survivors.

Today, a huge variety of gadgets and robots provide great help to rescuers, such as, for example, 10 robots that rush to help and help a person in the most difficult situations.
