AquaEye® uses SONAR technology. This abbreviation stands for SOund and NAvigation Ranging. A sonar, like a dolphin, sends sound waves through the water and receives the echoes, which can be caused by objects or living creatures. The sonar or echo sounder measures the time it takes for a sound wave to be received again. Sound waves from objects and living beings differ in many criteria, which the artificial intelligence AI of AquaEye® can measure, evaluate and display.
With AQUAEYE, up to 8000 square meters of water surface can be searched in less than 5 minutes.
AQUAEYE uses AI to decide which echoes match those of a human body, and displays the position of missing people on the screen.
AQUAEYE transmits a sonar pulse to a depth of 50 meters or 165 feet and evaluates the returning echo using state-of-the-art sonar technology.
With the AQUAEYE portable sonar, rescuers can quickly identify potential victims within seconds of being submerged in water. The safety of your rescue team is critical because water is often a dangerous place. This is especially true after a natural disaster.
By speeding up the search, AQUAEYE reduces the time your team spends in the water. Efficient use of your resources is also important. Teams tied up during a lengthy water rescue or recovery cause resource bottlenecks that can lead to longer response times and more man-hours.
The operation of AQUAEYE is kept very simple and the device is quickly ready for use. The screens offer a high contrast and are also under water and especially
AQUAEYE is built to keep your costs down. AQUAEYE is built to be stable and durable on the one hand, and suitable for many different uses on the other.
AquaEye® from VodaSafe is an advanced underwater scanner that uses the latest sonar technology as well as artificial intelligence to identify human bodies underwater and in waters with poor visibility. This lightweight, portable underwater sonar device enables rescuers to quickly get a clear view at the scene and locate potential victims within seconds.
AquaEye is the first search and rescue product of its kind and supports water rescue and recovery of victims even from polluted waters
Water rescue and recovery teams invest in AquaEye for three reasons:
AquaEye® is used by fire departments, lifeguards, law enforcement, aid agencies, and search and rescue teams to quickly locate a rescue or recovery target. AquaEye is the world’s first wearable sonar device that uses AI to specifically search for people in the water.
AquaEye® expands the range of options available to rescuers quickly and easily. It enables faster and safer rescues for responders, and it requires fewer personnel resources for a rescue mission.
