SEE-Rescue distress streamer

1 recipient will receive $2,968,000. This is a continuing earmark.
Year Enacted: 2005
Description: Development and field testing of SEE/RESCUE, a patented, compact, high strength, bright orange, polyethylene streamer that can be deployed by accident survivors on land or water. The streamer provides a large, continuous visual target for rescuers on the water or in the air. The streamer was developed by Rescue Technologies Corporation, a Hawaii based company recently honored by the Defense Supply Center, Richmond, VA as one of the U.S. Government's best suppliers. The Naval Submarine Medical Research Laboratory, Groton, CT will test and evaluate an infrared (IR) SEE/RESCUE distress streamer to provide U.S. Navy submarine crew members with 'passive and continuous' emergency signaling for both day and night searches (night vision goggle compatible). Personal-size IR Streamers will be evaluated for fit and operation based on Navy submarine evacuation procedures. Larger raft-size streamers will also be evaluated for incorporation into the standard submarine life raft and the associated evacuation procedures.
