Dolphin1 Deployed in A Joint Law Enforcement Exercise
On November 20th 2019, China, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, and Thailand conducted a joint water law enforcement exercise on the Mekong river. Dolphin1 RC Lifebuoy and SL40 unmanned vessel from OceanAlpha were deployed for patrol, reconnaissance, and rescue operations.
When salvaging suspicious items, a Dolphin1 set off at the same time with the frogmen to assist the latter with long-term salvage in complex waters. Dolphin 1 can provide lifesaving buoyancy to frogmen whenever they got exhausted.
SL40USV and Dolphin 1 on standby
In the exercise, a suspect dived and fled to an island, making it difficult for law enforcement officers to access as the underwater conditions are unknown and the current is turbulent. An SL40 USV equipped with optoelectronic equipment was sent out to conduct covert investigations. The USV, equipped with a jet pump propeller and autonomous obstacle avoidance, quickly approached the island, quietly captured the surroundings of the suspect, and transmitted real-time high-definition images to the on-site command center. The real-time information provides an important reference for the subsequent arrest.
