Mobilarm Launches Crewsafe

Friday, December 12, 2008

Australian marine safety specialist Mobilarm launched Crewsafe, a unique onboard wireless network with Man Overboard functionality at the 2008 International Workboat Show, Dec. 3-5.

Mobilarm Crewsafe is a wireless safety network that provides marine employee safety and security through crew location monitoring and by automatically initiating a network-wide alert to all personnel within seconds of an incident occurring.

"Each employee carries a palm-sized transceiver - a Tag - whose wireless signal keeps them connected to the network via a series of wireless routers. The network immediately detects any break in the signal and will automatically raise the alarm if the connection is not re-established within a few seconds. Therefore, if a worker goes overboard, the signal is lost, the alarm is raised and GPS tracking is implemented. The Tag also features a duress button that can be manually activated if an employee is in distress but not in the water," explains Lindsay Lyon, CEO, Mobilarm.
 
Crewsafe is a highly flexible system for use in most commercial marine environments including commercial fishing, offshore energy, workboats and loading facilities. It can monitor up to 12 crew using the Crewsafe Display Console, and more using the Windows-based Crewsafe Management System. Both devices use identical network components such as Tags for the crew, and internal and external routers for the wireless network components.
