Navigational Ocean Mammal Assistance Drone


Save Stranded whales


     My patented invention, the N.O.M.A.D. is the first aquatic drone that uses Cetacean/whale sounds to assist in the rescue of stranded marine mammals.   The N.O.M.A.D. works by helping Cetaceans to avoid swimming into dangerous waterways and by allowing rescue teams to lead them out of shallow water. The N.O.M.A.D is an aquatic drone that will emit sounds with a submergible microphone and playback of relevant and specific to those Cetaceans that are in danger. Research and recordings already exist that are proven to elicit either beacon or aversion behavior. The N.O.M.A.D. now gives marine mammal rescue teams a way to deploy these sounds with targeted precision. The NOMAD uses an underwater speaker to play whale songs and sounds specific to those of stranded Cetaceans. These sounds act as a beacon to direct stranded Cetaceans out of shallow water.      





What is the n.o.m.a.d?

prevent Shark Attacks


The N.O.M.A.D also will utilize permanent magnets or rare earth metals , which will allow the N.O.M.A.D. to serve a dual function of also repelling sharks from areas where humans may be swimming. It is my intention to offer a real economic incentive to beach municipalities and resorts to invest in protecting whales while also protecting their tourism trade
