A system for locating a human or an object in a dangerous situation at sea

SECULMER aims to develop a system for locating a human being or an object in danger at sea.

The SECULMER system is composed of different subsets, whose association enables the user who is in danger to control the opening of a sealed box and release a self-inflating ball. Thanks to its colours and various visual devices, the ball, when held in the air is a valuable aid in the locating and spotting of the user.
