Over seventeen million artisanal fishermen subsist off of their daily catch. They can’t afford the satellite solutions large commercial fishing vessels can. The McMurdo Group offers a unique RPMA-enabled boat tracking and two-way communication device that gives these fishermen a life-line in troubled waters and enables nations to monitor fishing in their waters.
Fatalities from capsized vessels can be prevented with RPMA® (Random Phase Multiple Access) connectivity. Because RPMA can reach 40 miles over open water, these fishermen now have access to continuous tracking and a panic button that allows fisherman to signal a distress situation, notifying other vessels in the area that a rescue is required.
Features & Benefits:
Because RPMA access points (AP) receive and understand over a thousand messages simultaneously, broadcast updates to all vessels in a particular fleet allow authorities to warn of impending inclement weather and provide other fleet-wide updates.
When a stranded vessel hits the panic button, communities and authorities are notified of an emergency. Millions who had no safety options available while out at sea, for the first time can get help when they need it most.
