Abstract

Search and rescue (SAR) craft have to endure the toughest conditions in order to save lives at sea. The design, resourcing, operation and support of a SAR fleet requires state-of-the-art technology and an ability to react to and exploit cutting edge research and foment future research agenda. This paper reviews the unique relationships that exist between the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) and academia to drive engineering innovations to the forefront of RNLI search and rescue craft and in particular the legacy of the Advanced Technology Partnership.
