Open water guard

Open Water Guard is an emergency rescue system designed to save cruise ship passengers who have fallen overboard.

Due to the difficulty of stopping and turning around a cruise ship, it usually takes more than seven hours to recover a passenger. Open Water Guard reduces this time to minutes. When a passenger goes overboard, a drone is dispatched, locating the passenger and releasing a lightweight, self- inflating life raft to provide protection until help arrives.
