Voting for the #Sammies2017 People’s Choice Award closes TONIGHT! This week we’re showcasing the top 4 finalists. Today’s spotlight shines on @nasagoddard's Lisa Mazzuca. (Link in bio) . . . NASA’s Dr. Lisa Mazzuca is developing technology that will help first responders locate and rescue people in distress from outdoor accidents (including aviation and marine accidents) much more quickly! The second-generation emergency locator beacon she and her team are developing will improve locating accuracy from about 2 kilometers to 100 meters or less. At less than a tenth of a mile, the improved accuracy would mitigate risk to both the person in distress and responders, who risk their own lives at times, by greatly reducing time needed to search. Lisa is pictured here assisting with electronic tests of the second-generation beacon. The first-generation system was developed in the 1970s and has saved more than 40,000 lives over the years, including four during Hurricane Harvey several weeks ago in Texas. . . . #NASASaves #SearchandRescue #NASA #Tech #Technology #Safety #Sammies2017 @nasa @nasagoddard
