17.4.2 The duty is qualified by what is reasonably to be expected given the limitations and characteristics of the relevant MASS. The duty does not require, nor is it limited to, taking persons on board.


17.4.3 The remote controller of a MASS will not breach the duty for failing to render a particular form of assistance on account of the MASS technical limitations or for the MASSs inability to take persons on board.


17.4.4 The MASS’s technical capabilities will define the nature and the requirements of the duty and not vice versa. However, situational cognisance and communications capability may be required by other international regulations, considered elsewhere.


17.4.5 On the assumption that the MASS will have stand off and close up monitoring capability giving continuous feedback to the remote controller, as a minimum:


n Having become aware of persons in distress, the MASS remote controller should make best endeavours to inform the appropriate search and rescue authorities through whichever means appropriate i.e. radio, camera live feed.


n In most circumstances, the MASS remote controller should ensure that the MASS is brought or remains in reasonable proximity with persons found in distress, to act as a visual reference point and communications point for research and rescue authorities.


17.4.6 Efforts should not be made to embark persons if this cannot be done safely, relative to the peril faced by persons in distress.
