The different characteristics of units enable them to be used for specific tasks at sea to varying ranges. The main advantage of WIG crafts is their speed, but they also have other features necessary for marine rescue. The assessment of the unit's potential effectiveness is based, among other things, on defining and determining the parameters influencing its ability to achieve success. Computer software such as SARMAP can be used for action planning. The article contains calculations for simulated actions of searching for several objects, additionally a graphical solution of the situation has been shown.}, doi = {10.12716/1001.13.02.23}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Aviation, SARMAP, Wing in Ground (WIG), WIG Craft, Search Action, IAMSAR Manual, International Aeronautical and Maritime Search and Rescue Manual (IAMSAR), Search and Rescue (SAR)} }
