What is SeeRescue Streamer?
The SeeRescue streamer is a piece of military-approved signaling technology that is about the size of a cell phone and can be deployed to a length of 25 feet, so it highlights the exact location of a stranded survivor against backgrounds that make them very difficult for rescuers to spot.
Who Owns SeeRescue Streamer?
Dr. Robert Yonover, the inventor of the SeeRescue streamer, fondly calls the ocean his laboratory and has dedicated his life to the invention of products that save lives and make the wilderness a safer place for adventurers. His patented inventions include an emergency pocket water desalinator, the SeeRescue high visibility device and pocket floatation technology.
Founder’s StoryGrowing up, Dr. Yonover had a strong connection to nature. While flying over the seas of Hawaii in a rented plane, he realized that in the event of a crash, spotting potential survivors in the expanse of the ocean would be nearly impossible. He created prototypes for See Rescue at home, while taking care of his wife who was suffering from multiple sclerosis. He later created a press release which he repeatedly pitched to editors as well as military officials.
