The Multiple Rescue System (MRS) allows up to 20 people, waiting for rescue in the water, to hold on to this inflatable floating device until they are rescued by supporting ships. The MRS may be used in all kind of rescue operations for small boats but as well for professional rescue ships and passenger ferries.
I addition it may be used as rescue device for air vehicles like Ultra Lights or Micro Lights. Due to its big buoyancy you may even use it as buoancy device for bigger boats/ships. When approaching the victims in the water you take the rescue line out of the valise and fix it to a firm point onboard the rescue boat. Then you throw the light weight valise into the water and the MRS will automatically inflate in about 3 minutes.
The MRS consists of a 3,80 m long buoyancy chamber with grab lines and grab loops all around. Stability in the water is maintained by 2 water stabilizing pockets attached to the bottom of the system.
A 40 meter rescue line is attached to the MRS which allows to fix the MRS to the rescue boat and to allow easy recovery of this rescue system. Once recovered, it may be re-used after having been re-armed with a special re-arming kit containing a new bobbin and a new clip for the Halkey Roberts automatic inflator and two new one-way CO-2 cylinders of 800 grams each.
In case of emergency the rescue line can be cut with a knife attached to the buoyancy chamber.
