MARSS’ MOBtronic system for RNZN fleet tanker
The tanker is currently under construction by Hyundai Heavy Industries in South Korea.
MOBtronic creates a virtual shield around a vessel which automatically detects and classifies a man-overboard event and supports rescue and recovery efforts of the crew.
The system consists of small marinised pods that are positioned around an entire vessel or platform. With a patented configuration of sensors, the MOBtronic pods notify crew when a man-overboard event occurs, minimising false alarms and operating even in harsh environments.
Using a combination of multi-sensor data and proprietary software, MOBtronic discerns an event from false positive detections caused by birds, breaking waves and other objects. The system does not require wearable tags, which could be removed, either intentionally or unintentionally. Alerts, live tracking and video playback are displayed on the intuitive MOBtronic user interface to aid crew in managing search and rescue operations and to analyse a man overboard incident.
Although the system is fully automated, 16 manual alarm activation stations will be installed around the vessel to further protect crew.
