Updated: Sonar_EMILY rescue robot incorporates Humminbird® sonar to find drowning victims

 EMILY w LA Life Guard Boat closeA state-of-the-art portable rescue craft is bringing more assistance to marine rescue teams. The Emergency Integrated Lifesaving Lanyard or EMILY, developed by Hydronalix, was first used to help lifeguards get to distressed swimmers faster than able-bodied first responders.

Since then, EMILY has been deployed by lifeguards, navies and coast guards around the world. In fact, the Center for Robot Search and Rescue (CRASAR), along with a team of researchers at Texas A&M, recently tested EMILY successfully with the Italian Coast Guard in a refugee rescue scenario. Now the robust four-foot cylindrical life-jacket-come-jet-ski has an essential role to play in Law Enforcement marine rescue operations – particularly due to its new sonar feature.

The radio-remote-controlled, battery-operated unit can speed through surf up to 22 miles per hour. With the addition of Humminbird® sonar, EMILY can enhance drowning victim searches. The speed at which EMILY finds the victim could be instrumental to successful resuscitation.
