An Israeli company has recently decided to develop a new use for the drone by modifying a model and using it to rescue drowning people at sea, Israel’s Ynet reported this week.
The new drone, developed by Blueskimmer, carries three floats that swell rapidly with water and is designed to expand the range of lifeguards at the beach and their life-saving abilities.
Once the lifeguard identifies a person in distress hundreds of meters away, the drone can deploy the floats in just 15 seconds.
It is also equipped with a loudspeaker system, enabling the lifeguard to instruct the person in the water.
The drone is made of carbon fiber and can operate within a radius of up to 2 km, dramatically shortening the response time to a drowning victim.
Israel’s coastal city of Tel Aviv-Yafo has 13 beaches with a total length of 13.5 km and is examining the purchase of such units.
