Underwater search and rescue management system

Today there are no good tools to help management handle and support underwater workers. This project aims at developing a demonstrator system that will give the managers on land full access to data from the divers and at the same time allow them to communicate easily

AQWARY AB is a Swedish company that intents on making incredible diving experiences even better with cutting edge technology applied in an underwater scenario. We want to improve the way divers communicate, as well as actively support the diving community. Our first product, the Smart Console, enables divers to share information across their own local subaquatic network. DRAGER SAFETY AG & Co. KGaA provides products, services, and system solutions in the areas gas measuring technology, personal protection, diving, and system technologies and services. Its products include mobile gas measuring devices, stationary gas measurement systems, helmets, air breathing equipment, protective suits, masks, filters, escape equipment, and diving equipment. The company also offers maintenance and repair work, spare parts supply, documentation of work carried out, product leasing and rental, and shut-down services. In addition, the company provides system technologies, such as workshop systems, training systems, breathing gas supply systems, and collective protection system. There are a lot of divers working with underwater search and rescue. These work in a tough environment with high level of stress and hard work. Today there are no good tools to help management handle and support underwater workers. This project aim at developing a demonstrator system that will give the managers on land full access to data from the divers and at the same time allow them to communicate easily. The Aqwary product line is designed towards recreational divers. This means that there are aspects of the system where users can accept lower functionality. In order for Aqwary to fully support the public safety diving market we need to increase product functionality and robustness on several levels. But the big leap for the product is to change focus from the underwater person to the rescue leader on land. Aqwarys unique underwater network can serve as a foundation for improving the effectiveness of the dive leader by providing them with up to date information about the status of the diver as well as a reliable communication channel
