AQUAEYE by VodaSafe is an advanced underwater scanner that uses the latest sonar technology as well as artificial intelligence to identify human bodies underwater and in waters with poor visibility. This lightweight, portable underwater sonar device allows rescuers to quickly get a clear view at the scene and locate potential victims within seconds. AQUAEYE is the first search and rescue product of its kind.
AQUAEYE is used by fire departments, rescue swimmers, law enforcement, relief agencies, and search, rescue and recovery teams to quickly locate a rescue or recovery target.
How it works
AQUAEYE transmits a sonar pulse to a depth of 50m (165ft) and evaluates the returning echo. AQUAEYE then decides which echoes match the echoes of a human body and displays the position of the missing persons on the screen. AQUAEYE can scan 8,000m2 (85,000ft2) of water surface in less than 5 minutes.
Faster and safer rescue
With AQUAEYE portable sonar, rescuers can quickly identify victims within seconds of being submerged in water. The safety of your rescue team is critical because water is often a dangerous place, especially after a natural disaster.
By speeding up the search, AQUAEYE reduces the time your team spends in the water. Efficient use of your personnel resources is also important. Teams tied up during a lengthy water rescue or recovery cause resource bottlenecks that can lead to longer response times and more man hours.
