With the development of the maritime economy, sea traffic is becoming more and more crowded, and sea accidents are also increasing. Research on maritime search and rescue decision-making technology cannot be delayed. This paper studies the maritime search and rescue decision algorithm, based on the optimal search theory. It also analyzes three important concepts: Probability of containment (POC), probability of detection (POD), and probability of success (POS) involved in the maritime search and rescue decision-making process. In this paper, the calculation methods of POC and POD variables have been improved, and the search success rate has been improved to some extent. Finally, an example analysis of the maritime search and rescue incident is given. Through verification, the algorithm proposed in this paper can support maritime search and rescue decisions.
