Overboard Location Alert System

ACR OLAS technology works by detecting a break in the ‘vitual tether’ from your mobile device, Core, Guardian, or Extender receivers to the ACR OLAS MOB system within 8 seconds of someone falling overboard. The phone stores the GPS location, sounds a loud alarm, alerting crew to the man overboard incident before the OLAS app then aids the recovery with directions to the stored GPS location.
