Amidst a natural disaster, such as an inundation, damage control is optimally important. The Air Rope increases the likelihood that survivors will actually make it to safety, and not end up at risk of succumbing to a violent swell.

Lee Yong Ho, Lee Jee Won and Lee Juan studied one of the current methods for bringing stranded people across an overflowing river; they determined that it's dangerous to prepare for the traverse, and the process of crossing is often anything but secure.

The Air Rope assists both rescuers and victims with its ability to be set up from dry land. It can be unpacked from its compact case and quickly inflated, producing an anchored tunnel through which people can crawl.
