Do you conduct Search and Rescue operations on a boat/ship?
Then this is REALLY the app for you!
Easily calculate various values to help you manage your search patterns.
PLUS have a map displaying the search area and your search pattern, and with GPS equipped iOS devices, you can see your current position as well!
Universal App!

Featured search patterns:
- Expanding Square
- Creeping Line Ahead (CLA)
- Sector Search
- Track Crawl
- Oil Field

For each search pattern, you can:
- calculate total distance of your search
- calculate how long it will take to conduct it
- calculate total square area searched
- calculate tracks
- view/calculate left or right patterns
- display the pattern on a map
- view a Full Screen map in Portrait or Landscape
- view current position with reference to the pattern
- view calculated waypoint Lat/Longs to enter into a search GPS
- mark your current position for where you left track or for a call-around/sighting/on-top
- enter a variation so you can enter all tracks in Magnetic but the pattern is still oriented True North on the map
- enter distances/speeds in: nm / sm / km / yards
- view bearing & distance to CSP from current position
- draw a line direct to the CSP from current position
- EXPORT the pattern as a .GPX file for use in other apps/Computer programs
- EXPORT your breadcrumbs as a .GPX file


in addition to:

Expanding Square:
- calculate number of waypoints needed to enter the pattern in a GPS
- tap on the graphic to highlight which legs you have completed (iPad only)

Creeping Line Ahead:
- calculate number of legs to fly based on a given the distance you need to creep (defined search area)
OR
- calculate the maximum distance you can cover based on a fixed amount of legs

Sector:
- use 60 degree or 30 degree cuts
- calculate subsequent tracks

Track Crawl:
- use bearing/distance or Lat/Long inputs to calculate subsequent waypoints

Oil Field:
- Calculate the pattern based on various angles
