Shakespeare Marine have won an award in the ‘Lifesaving and Safety Equipment’ category for their GALAXY-INFL8 at the DAME Design Awards. The brand-new GALAXY-INFL8 is the world’s first inflatable emergency VHF antenna and was launched at METSTRADE 2018.

The GALAXY-INFL8 can be rapidly deployed via an embedded canister or manual tube and inflates to 1.6 metres. It is also supplied with a splice connector, enabling fast and efficient connection to existing radio cables, which further improves the radio transmission range.

European sales manager at Shakespeare Marine, Dave Manasseh, commented: ‘We’re proud to win this award and would like to thank the judges for this recognition. The GALAXY-INFL8 is the culmination of years of hard work from our engineering and design specialists and a game-changer for emergency communications.’
