U-Safe is a remote-controlled and self-propelled lifesaver capable of moving at 15 km/h, a drone for relief operations.
Noras Performance has developed a self-propelled, remote-controlled life preserver capable of boarding the sailor and carrying them back to the ship.
The U-Safe device claims to complete rescue missions in just a few minutes.
U-Safe weighs 14 kilos and is capable of riding the waves at a speed of 15 kilometers per hour. Its radius of action is 500 meters when driven at a height of 10 m. At sea level the range is somewhat lower, 300 m.
She has designed so that she can be maneuvered remotely, via remote control, from the ship’s bridge or even by a sailor coming to the rescue.
For its use, it has a remote control equipped with a joystick that works with radio frequency.
The drone measures 80 centimeters wide and one meter high and is made of polyurethane, in one piece.
It has lights and is equipped with a lithium battery with a range of 35 minutes.U-Safe remains in standby, so throwing it into the water is enough. The joystick, weighing 231.5 grams and with a range of five hours, can also be handled in the water.
