A Handheld Sonar Device for Water Rescue
AquaEye® is being used by Fire Rescue, Lifeguard, Law Enforcement and Search and Rescue teams to quickly locate a rescue or recovery target. AquaEye is the world’s first handheld sonar device using artificial intelligence to specifically search for humans in the water.
How It Works
AquaEye® is an advanced underwater scanner, using the latest in ultrasound and artificial intelligence technologies to identify human bodies underwater.
AquaEye sends a sonar pulse out to 50 meters or 165 feet and listens for the return echo. AquaEye then decides which echoes match the echoes from a human body and indicates the location of the missing persons on the screen.
AquaEye can scan 1 acre of water in under 2 minutes.
What It Does For Your Team
AquaEye handheld sonar enables rescuers to quickly access a scene and identify potential victims within seconds of entering the water.
Keeping your team safe is key, and the water is a dangerous place. By speeding up a search, AquaEye shortens the time your team is in the water.
Being efficient with your resources is also important. Teams tied up during a long water rescue or recovery create resource constraints which can lead to longer response times and increased labor hours
See AquaEye in Action
Watch AquaEye in action as the user locates a hiding diver sitting on the bottom of the lake. We use free divers so there are no bubbles to act as clues, and the diver was instructed to hide for 1 minute. Our user is able to enter the water, complete the scan and determine the location of the missing human in under 1 minute.
Portable and Durable
In waterfront rescue, every second counts, which is why AquaEye is designed for grab and go situations. It will remain fully charged while on its charging dock and once removed will operate continuously for 8 hours before requiring a recharge. If an AquaEye® is left on standby without being used for long periods of time we recommend recharging it once every 2-3 months.
AquaEye® is designed to survive in real-world conditions. Rescuers operate in all weather and in unpredictable environments and their equipment must do the same. AquaEye® scanner quality is robust, buoyant, waterproof, can withstand salt and sand, and is built to sustain impact.
