Luxury Vessels

Navigating busy and congested waterways can be a perilous task in poor conditions. Ships and other obstacles can appear out of nowhere and without the help of a radar system you may need to scramble to evade a collision. There is also the persistent danger that a crew member might go overboard during your journey. They will need to be located and rescued as soon a possible before they are overcome by the conditions.

Ship on ship collisions or a crewmember going overboard are two very real threats that can befall even the most experienced sailor. However, whilst it is difficult to foresee when either eventuality might happen, we can provide the owners of luxury vessels with the tools to enable them to act accordingly, regardless of the conditions.

How do Thermal Infrared Cameras and Personal Location Beacons help?

A small infrared camera will allow you to see in both poor visibility and total darkness. It works by picking up the heat signature that the human body or a vessel emits and forming a picture based on temperature. This means that regardless of the conditions the user will still be able to see perfectly clearly.

A personal Location Beacon should be only used as a last resort if you believe there is a serious risk to human life. Once activated, they will alert a 24hr control centre of your physical location to within a few square meters so that the emergency rescue services can be quickly directed to your location.
