Steven Bancroft

Central Coast, New South Wales

Sea rescue system inventor

Living on the coast, Steven has witnessed first-hand the trauma associated with ocean search and rescue efforts, including the tragic drowning of a local five-year-old. Combining his ingenuity and practical skills, he has developed The Chase – a search and rescue tracking device that uses new technology to accurately track a body at sea. Steven is using his AMP Tomorrow Fund to take The Chase to the next stage of development and manufacture: “The quick deployment of The Chase in any ocean-based scenario will increase the likelihood of a person being located swiftly, with minimal resources.”
