In an MOB situation OLAS will sound an alarm and record the latitude and longitude of the incident using the phone or tablets GPS.
In the event that the skipper or a crew member has gone overboard OLAS helps direct the remaining crew on a successful MOB recovery and communication with emergency services
NOTE: The OLAS app will direct back to the last known alert GPS position, recorded by the mobile device when the incident occurred. The OLAS app does not live track the OLAS tags location after the connection has broken. The OLAS tag is not a GPS transmitter.
Pre-set your OLAS APP with your vessel information, such as vessel name, call sign and MMSI. This will be integrated into the distress call procedure along with the coordinates of the alert.
The emergency number feature allows you to pre-select your local emergency number, such as 112 in Europe. This feature is accessed in Emergency information.
Alternatively there is the option to enter a personal emergency number such as a sister vessel contact number.
In an MOB situation you can select which number you wish to call.
False alerts may occur due to a connection break, such as someone jumping ashore. This can be simply cancelled by bringing the Tag back into range or by manually cancelling the alert on the phone.
Note : Carbon and aluminium hulls will block the connection. If used in carbon or aluminium hulls it is important that the device with the OLAS APP is close to the hatch so a clear line can be achieved for connection.
There’s one helm on deck and the other(s) below deck due to bad weather, sleeping, shift rotation, making a drink etc.
The helm sets the autopilot for a quick adjustment to the sails. A simple misplaced footing or bad wave...and then they are overboard without anyone noticing, when or where this happened.
The OLAS app will start the alarm approximately 8 seconds after the connection between the mobile device and the tag is broken.
At anchor, in port or even by a swimming pool you want your children to feel free to run around. But a simple trip and they can be off the dock or boat and into the water.
If they are wearing an OLAS Tag the alert will sound when they fall in. Your mobile device can be connected to an external speaker system to ensure the alert can be heard above local noise.
