Winner of the prestigious DAME Design Award in the Lifesaving and Safety category at the 2017 METSTRADE show in Amsterdam: CrewWatcher is a revolutionary, app-based crew overboard alarm system that is the fastest way to rescue a person who is overboard. The system works like a virtual lifeline and is made up of two components: a smartphone application and a small beacon that can be comfortably worn by each crew. The beacon does not require complex manual activation. The alarm will trigger automatically in a man overboard event. Should someone go overboard, it will automatically sound an alarm, provide lat/long coordinates of the MOB event, the time of the event, and will visually guide the rescuer.
