Long range directional RFIDs can be modified to be a bit
more long range, and fitted on life jackets. Rescue
helicopters can additionally use rfid readers to quickly
locate the victims.
Inspired by Life Jacket with Danboy( see
They can even carry information of the passenger who was
supposed to be using it.
It could use power generated by salt water to boost the
signal a bit.(see link) No?
LifeJacket with Danbuoy.
This is the inspiring Idea. [kamathln, Oct 31 2008]
A device which can be modified to be a bit longer range. [kamathln, Oct 31 2008]
Variation of the idea, in a watch. [zen_tom, Oct 31 2008]

RFID relies on the proximity of two devices. Lost Services, with a random walk approach, will pick up the signal and the skeleton. [4whom, Oct 31 2008]

||If you're close enough to use RFID, you're probably close enough to see the victim.
||Don't know if it will work if you need to find the "victim" alive. Will help for the SOS clean-up team. Move skeleton, clean up SOS...<link>

||If you'd been lost for a period of time, the range limitations probably would make this moot.
||But if you'd only just gone overboard in fog or high seas, this would be a blessing for all involved.
