Details

Incorporating new and improved hydrostatic inflation technology, and a durable and easy-to-use SecureZip PFD closure system, the Auto Hydrostatic Inflatable Vest with LIFT is a lightweight inflatable PFD designed with a shorter length and a low and flexible profile to ensure total mobility during even the most rigorous activities.

Made primarily for performance sailors and power boaters, and security and rescue professionals, the Vest is also an excellent choice for individuals who desire added protection.

Engineered with the revolutionary LIFT PFD design, the Vest delivers a high level of safety for users in variable wind and wave conditions by elevating the mouth out of the water by up to 9 inches (23cm). Known as freeboard, this increase in elevation has been shown to reduce underwater mouth immersions by 80%, increasing the chance of survival in accidental immersion situations.
  • 40 lb buoyancy when inflated
  • LIFT provides up to 9" of freeboard - the highest elevation out of water ever seen in a PFD - for extra safety in severe weather. This reduces mouth immersions and increases visibility to rescue crews.
  • Auto hydrostatic inflator is maintenance free for 5 years unless inflated
  • When inflated, LIFT bladder has stabilizing wings on sides and behind the neck to provide support in rough waters
  • Safety Inspection Window - window allows user to easily inspect inflator status: green indicates inflator is ready for use
  • SecureZIP closure withstands rigorous activity and is easy to repack
  • Comfortable neoprene collar
  • Mesh back allows for good air flow to keep wearer cool
  • Durable 420-Denier nylon
  • Cylinder is contained inside bladder to protect against corrosion
  • Backup oral inflation tube
  • Strobe light holder, safety whistle and SOLAS reflective tape
  • D-ring
Notable Specifications:
  • USCG Approved Type V PFD for use when worn on uninspected commercial vessels less than 40 ft. in length not carrying passengers for hire as a substitute for a Type II or III PFD when used in accordance with the owner's manual
  • 40 lb buoyancy when inflated

Subtleties of Submarine Groundwater Discharge and Coral Reefs

Coral reefs are among the world's most diverse ecosystems , home to about one-third of all oceanic species of fish, and tens of thousands of marine species in total. Coral reefs are also valuable to humans, sheltering coastal areas from storms and offering billions in food and income all over the world. Unfortunately, many reefs have been permanently damaged or destroyed, and of those that remain, about 75 percent are threatened. Those reefs that lie very close to shore, nearshore coral reefs, are in many ways the most important to humans—and the most imperiled.

Bioinspired Mantis-Cam Enables Underwater Geolocation

Viktor Gruev is a busy person. He's a professor twice over, at the University of Illinois in electrical and computer engineering, and at the Carle Illinois College of Medicine, where his research in imaging technologies leads to better diagnostics and treatments for patients. Gruev also spends a lot of time taking cues from nature, and he spoke to EM about recently publishing on two different innovative sensing technologies. “We had two big papers that came out this week,†explains Gruev. “One was on this underwater geolocalization camera , and the second paper that just came out yesterday focuses on a butterfly-inspired camera for cancer detection.

Chiral Water Reveals New Pathways Toward Desalination and Purification

A serendipitous discovery may lead to new water purification and desalination technologies. Corresponding author Mihail Barboiu of the National Center for Scientific Research , or CNRS, a public organization governed by the French Ministry of Education and Research, corresponded with EM about the research . “We discovered artificial water channels by accident,†explains Barboiu. “Our research has been focused on materials for fuel cells, using imidazole-based molecules to build the system. We didn’t expect that these systems could form channels—and more importantly, would be highly selective for water! They were the first artificial water channels, selectively transporting water against ions.
