The system will actively respond to a kayaker’s location, using a non-visual communication device, with the intent of leading the participant to the next waypoint. The basic structure of the standard hard shell kayak will not be altered and the system will be completely water/weather proof. If the system is attached to the kayak, it will be no larger than a small beach ball and fit beneath the kayaker’s legs. The product will be designed for easy of mobility and shipping so that it can be shared across the different chapters of Team River Runner. Improving the quality of life for men and women who have served in the armed forces is of utmost importance.
