The iceRESC water rescue craft is well adapted to its working environment, courtesy of well-researched engineering. Attributes like the caterpillar tracks, for easy travel in water and over ice; and the inflatable body with hard-formed parts, combine compactness for easy hauling, and quick unfolding for easy deployment. To further expedite its deployment, it is designed with self-contained inflation tubes. When it comes to ice rescues, it is very important to have a craft that can travel a straight line through the terrain without having to zig-zag around ice-blocks.
It is also of the utmost importance that the craft is ready to head for the distressed person in the least amount of time, since every second counts in rescue missions. The caterpillar tracks and the quick self-inflation are engineered to meet these requirements, and along with some other vital features make the iceRESC a breath of fresh air and a hope for survival. Rescuers and victims alike will come to appreciate the effort and attention poured into the design of the iceRESC.
