Working with the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, Active Web Solutions has developed an innovative satellite based safety system that automatically raises an alert when a vessel is in trouble or there is a man overboard situation. Together, the RNLI and AWS have created a technology solution that actively assists in preventing the needless loss of life at sea and helps to take the 'search' out of 'search and rescue'.
