Man Overboard events continue to be a common occurrence in the cruise industry and other related markets. The problem is compounded by the fact that when these events occur the timely availability of important data is missing. Accurate confirmation of the event including time of occurrence, location on the ship and location in the sea is critical, but often unavailable for hours following an occurrence, if at all. Fortunately, proactive detection systems such as the Man Overboard Detection System from PureTech Systems, can accurately detect man overboard events and provide immediate, actionable data to response personnel.

Almost as important as detection accuracy, false alarms from weather conditions and cruise operations can minimize the effectiveness of detection systems. The Man Overboard Detection System has undergone real-world testing on board superliner-class cruise ships using industry-developed guidelines along established cold water and warm water cruise routes. The system is affordable and testing demonstrated positive results including minimal false alarms, and very high detection rates.
