Times cited (SCOPUS): 1
ABSTRACT: Selection and choice of search and rescue units is an important stage in planning SAR operations at sea. 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.
