Little Ripper Lifesaver
Surf Life Saving Queensland uses Little Ripper Lifesaver drones for search and rescue.
Lifeguards and lifesavers are equipped with Little Ripper Lifesaver drones which can relay vision with pinpoint accuracy, monitor marine life such as crocodiles and sharks, and have the potential in the future to drop buoyancy devices to assist swimmers in distress.
The surveillance capabilities of the drones will enable lifeguards and lifesavers to closely monitor rips and spot swimmers in need of help. Our lifeguards and lifesavers perform a significant number of rescues along Queensland’s coastline and the new drones will enable SLSQ to help protect more people than ever before.
