Barents Support Network. Offshore Search and Rescue Initiative
MetadataShow full item record
As newfound prospects accompanied by hospitable changes to climatic conditions make way for growing economic ambitions on the Barents Sea, so arises the urgency to provide proportionate measures of safety and support for the increased human presence and activity in this hostile environment. This project focuses on the architectural development of an offshore Search and Rescue station on the Barents Sea, as well as the proposal for an accompanying communication and surveillance network, with the intention of providing a viable solution for areas of activity which currently suffer from a lack of suficient rescue service coverage. The station would be capable of aeronautical and maritime rescue and recovery response, while providing supplies to extend the range and presence of patrol ships.
