BULSAR (BULgarian Search And Rescue) is a volunteer association with an ideal goal for coordination, search and rescue of distressed people who survived disasters in the Bulgarian maritime responsible area. Members of BULSAR are prominent marine specialists with knowledge of search and rescue at sea as well as owners of small vessels with which we carry out our activities.

The concept of BULSAR includes new technologies and innovative methodologies, including the use of UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles), which are increasingly used in the modern world, including in search and rescue tasks.

With the help of long-distance telemetry, thermal cameras and fully autonomous automatic control systems, UAVs provide opportunities for quick and easy detection of distressed people in open sea, their localization with high accuracy, as well as providing preliminary information about their condition.
