If you search for oil spill damages on google, you will certainly get anxious knowing the horrible harm it is doing to our environment. The situation gets worse when the oil spill occurs due to explosion on oil fields situated in sea surfaces where removing the oils become almost impossible. System for effectively combating oil slick has been designed to reinforce maritime emergency fighters to face massive oil spill situations. Several units of this system are envisioned to be stored in airports near the seashore that can be dropped in the desired spot through aircrafts. As soon as the system hits the oil surface, a symmetric system of tubes gets radically inflated under water through a gas cartridge. A finely woven net gets stretched up by the tubes and bonds oil without any chemicals. Finally, these systems can be retrieved by boats by hitching the ring like binding. Each system can cover up to 2000 square meter area under any weather condition. To make it even more functional, radar reflectors and GPS have been incorporated with the system for easy locating and ultrasonic sounds to keep seabirds away.
