Rescue Lasers are not a hazardous product to keep on a plane or boat. One of the outstanding benefits of these flares are they are battery operated lasting up to 2400 times longer than existing pyrotechnic flares. They can be seen up to 32 kilometres away at night. and retail at reasonable price.
They are very different to laser pointer by having a different lens which is designed specifically for Search and Rescue Operations. At 12 kilometres from the light source the Laser Flare cover splays to 900 metres. Available in either a green or red light, they stand out when pointed at those being rescued or those being searched for.
Rescue Lasers are the future in rescue signalling. Greatland reports that the market response to its handheld laser products has been very positive. 'We`ve worked hard to develop small, lightweight, robust and reliable products meeting the signalling needs of a wide range of military and civilian customers.'
Professional and military authorities as well as boaters, Skiers, Kayakers, hikers and other outdoor enthusiast in Australia can now carry this life-saving tool technology.
SOS Marine is an Australian company manufacturing safety and rescue equipment for 12 Countries Defence Forces and many maritime professionals worldwide.
The Rescue Laser Flares can be seen at Southern Seas Stand 716, Sydney Boat Show from the second-6th August.
