RNLI launches AWS safety system

The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) has signed a 10-year deal with Active Web Solutions (AWS) to develop the charity's innovative satellite-based safety system that sends an automatic alert when a vessel is in trouble or there is a man overboard.

AWS will host, manage and develop the software applications and provide the terrestrial technical infrastructure and satellite airtime for the project, which follows a 100-boat trial with fishermen around the UK coast.
