Jessacko Rescue System
Patent No 2019/0122 (Pending)
This system is a fully automatic light source to help rescue teams find accident sites. The lights could also be used as warning lights on land.
It often happens where there is an aircraft, boat or other vessel that has an accident especially in water like the sea, that they can’t be found, or searches have to be called off in the dark.
Most aircraft are fitted with black boxes, but they do not help in finding the crash site.
There is thus a need for a product to help assist rescue teams.
The system also has a secondary purpose in that it could be used as a warning system on land where a vehicle has broken down or an accident took place.
This product turn on automatically in case of an accident and will float on the water. It has flashing lights, thus making it easier to spot, even in the dark. When used in vehicle’s when they break down or was in an accident, they could be placed behind the vehicle to warn oncoming traffic, especially around bends in the road.
How the system works.
The product come as separate units. The base, or charging unit, and the additional light units.
The base unit also function as a light system when in use.
For the system to work it must have the base unit as well as at least one additional unit.
On the outside of the container there is be a label where the details of the aircraft or boat / ship can be added. This will help rescue teams identify the aircraft or vessel.
The units are bright orange, this make it easier to see.
This product consists of a waterproof container. The container itself is be clear, or could have clear “windows” for the lights to shine through. The light bulbs could also protrude the container. (Depending on client’s requirement). The container is waterproof as well as shockproof.
The containers will be manufactured with a lip on the top in order for them to be securely stacked on top of each other. The lip will also stop the containers from slipping off in case of turbulence or choppy water.
Inside the container is a pc board controlling the workings of the light system. The lights and power source is also be housed inside the container. The lights will be flashing. It could be the SOS or any other plashing cycle, or a combination of both, depending on the client’s requirements.
Each unit has it’s own power source which are rechargeable.
Each unit receives it’s charge from the unit below it, and supply charge to the unit above it.
The base or charging unit also have a charging status light, or other means of showing the charge in the batteries. The additional units may also be fitted with these indicators. (Depending on clients requirement)
There are also switches fitted inside the containers. The switches are spring loaded and of light pressure. The switches protrude the top of each container. This is true for every container except the second one which will have s switch on the bottom as well.
The switches are of the open type, meaning when lifted off the bottom unit and the switch close the unit will turn on. When the protruding part of the switch is pushed in it will be in the off position.
The size and dimensions of the containers will vary according to where they will be used. Cars and other road vehicles and small boats will have a smaller unit than the one used in aircraft and vessels.
Workings of the system.
The units are stacked on top of each other. When there is an accident they topple over and turn on. If the aircraft or vessel should sink, then the units will float to the surface where they would be easily spotted by rescue teams.
When used on land the driver of the vehicle that was involved in an accident or has broken down can remove the unit from the vehicle and place them at safe spots on the side of the road to warn other road users. If the unit consist of 10 units plus the base unit and is placed 20 meters apart, that will warn other road users for at least 220 meters warning before they reach the stranded vehicle.
We are currently building the various proto types and aim to be in full production by the end of 2021.
