    NEW LONDON, Conn. -- Coast Guard Academy Mechanical Engineering cadets have been prototyping a new and improved rescue basket, which could revolutionize the way the Coast Guard conducts search and rescue missions onboard the MH-60 Jayhawk helicopters.

    First Class Cadets Christian Breviario, Riely Brande, Benjamin Crutchfield, Nolan Richerson and Spencer Smith spent the last year working to redesign the current rescue basket used by U.S. Cost Guard operators, to include a door for easier entry and exit, increased space within the basket to allow for multiple victims and a reconfigured flotation system of the basket for added buoyancy.
