MSS/TFSS-8202 Maritime Safety System
Utilizing the globally recognized PECI Flotation Tactical Flotation Support Systems (“TFSS”), the Maritime Safety System (“MSS”) adds a new dimension of safety and survival by incorporating the already proven and accepted SEA2 auxiliary air system and multi-functional in-water survival and personal recovery kit. Included are right and left TFSS flotation devices that provide 80 lbs of life on the surface (sea water) together with a SEA2 air system incorporating approximately 3 to 5 minutes of air for safe egress from an underwater crisis scenario. Additionally included is a survival pouch that includes a chem-lite and/or dye-marker, signal mirror, and signal whistle.
The MSS is incorporated into a sturdy rescue/riggers belt maintained on the body until manual release while being secured by the proven “Cobra-style” buckle system making the individually readily available for extraction. The system has been designed for easy don and doffing with two buckles; the main buckle and the leg clasp for the thigh rig associated with the SEA2 air system.
Once the system is inflated, there are easy to use support straps to contain the system around the individual or to attach to others under a buddy scenario.
