A new radar, capable of easily tracking victims that have gotten buried or miners trapped underground, was inspired by dolphin sonar. Developed by British engineers, the device emits two pulses in rapid succession – just like dolphins do - allowing a trace with greater speed and accuracy than conventional equipment.

According to Timothy Leighton, an engineer at the University of Southampton and a member of the team that developed the radar, the research came about because of the curiosity to find out how dolphins orient themselves and see their prey even in the midst of large bubbles that they emit.
