This campaign is designed to collect satellite images from an original refugee inflatable on Berlin’s waterways between May and July 2017.
It is part of a research project with the aim of detecting these refugee boats in the Mediterranean Sea to support Search&Rescue missions on the water.
To simulate the real situation of a refugee boat, volunteers are sought-after for three special events to fill up the boat.
