AUTOMATED MAN-OVERBOARD DETECTION & TRACKING
MULTI-SENSOR DETECTION, ALERT & RESCUE SUPPORT
MOBtronic automatically detects, classifies and alerts users to a human falling from a vessel.
WHAT IS MOBtronic
MOBtronic provides enhanced awareness and increased reaction time to man-overboard incidents, supporting decision making and aiding rescue.
Each MOBtronic unit is self-contained combining micro-radars, imaging sensors and computer processing to automatically detect, classify and track falling objects.
Multiple sensor stations, mounted at strategic locations, simulaneously and continously monitor the volume around the vessel, searching for falling objects.
Falling objects are automatically and instantly detected and tracked by high-resolution solid-state radars. The behaviour of the confirmed tracks is then analysed based on speed, fall direction, shape and size.
3. CONFIRMATION & RESCUE
Merging of multiple sensors ensures MOB radar tracks are further classified based on IR heat signature (object shape, dimension and range), while live video feeds and tracking of the victim in the water aid rescue operations
INTUITIVE COMMAND & CONTROL
The intuitive MOBtronic command and control interface automatically presents clear radar and video evidence for immediate identification and verification by the crew, while tracking of the victim at sea supports rapid response.
The Secret to High Probability of Detection & Low False Alarms
- Multiple radars simultaneously monitor ship wall ensuring falling objects are detected and tracked
- Radar tracks are confirmed by collocated independent radar sensors
- Behavior of confirmed track is analyzed (based on speed, fall direction, shape, strength)
- MOB radar track is verified with infrared signature (heat, object shape, dimension, range)
- Visual confirmation by crew based on video replay; within seconds crew can confirm MOB alarm
Utilising the same multi-sensor approach, MOBtronic also incorporates a secondary function to automatically detect and alert operators to climbers ascending the side of a vessel for early intruder detection.
MOBtronic has been developed to provide redundancy and reliable operation in the most diverse maritime environments and conditions. Built to highest military standards (including EMI/EMC, ingress protection, shock, vibration, extended temperature), each self-contained unit integrates multi-sensor technology with proprietary data analysis and classification algorithms for ease of installation, maintenance and operation.
