OceanAlpha launches Dolphin 1 USRV

13th May 2019 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


OceanAlpha has launched a battery powered and remotely navigated unmanned surface rescue vehicle (USRV) called Dolphin 1, the company announced on 8 May.

Dolphin 1 is a smart, buoyant, unmanned life-saving device designed to support water rescuers, marinas and offshore oil and gas platforms. The USRV can be operated in all types of water environments and can be used to augment or replace personal flotation devices and other water vehicles such as jet skis or small craft during water SAR operations.

The Dolphin has a range of 500m and can travel at a speed of almost 10 miles/hour to reach a person in distress. The high penetration fog lights located near the front top of the Dolphin 1 provide increased visibility in fog and at night.
