In order to solve the problem of low efficiency and high cost which is caused by the poor accuracy of the drifting trajectory of the rescued object in maritime SAR ,this paper develops a AIS network communication buoy group for maritime search and rescue.Making full use of the data transmission and compilation functions of the micro control unit, the close-range information interaction function of AIS and the long-distance communication function of Beidou, we create a set of highly modular and low-cost maritime search and rescue buoys,which can realize the transition from 'Individual combat' to 'multi-soldier combat'. Experiments in key sea areas can supplement and correct the wind pressure drift coefficient, so that the prediction of drift trajectory is more accurate.
