Introducing the OceanAlpha Dolphin 1 The leading unmanned surface rescue vehicle (USRV) for public safety, lifeguards, marinas, offshore oil and gas platforms, and ships.

Victims are often unprepared for the water and panic when confronted with conditions that are beyond nominal. In these situations when time is of the essence, the Dolphin’s 500m range and almost 10 miles/hour speed allow it to be quickly deployed and remotely navigated toward a victim in distress.

Since the Dolphin 1, a water rescue robot, can be easily stored, transported, and deployed, it drastically improves workflows for water rescuers, marinas, and offshore oil and gas platforms and will decrease overall costs and risks involved with search and rescue missions. Since the Dolphin 1 operates equally well in all types of water environments, it is the ideal device to augment or replace personal flotation devices and other water vehicles like jet skis or small craft.

Victims are often unprepared for the water and panic when confronted with conditions that are beyond nominal. In these situations, unlike other water rescue equipment, when time is of the essence, the Dolphin’s 500m range and almost 10 miles/hour speed allow it to be quickly deployed and remote control rescue facilitates navigation toward a victim in distress. Additionally, high penetration fog lights located near the front top of the Dolphin 1 provide increased visibility in fog and at night, reducing the risk of losing sight of the victim and enabling rescuers to maintain a vantage point.

Dolphin USRVs are available from the Ocean Alpha team directly and begin shipping in June 2019. For sales information, simply fill out the information request form at OceanAlpha.us and team members will provide pricing and specification info.
