MSC Deploys First Man Overboard Detection System

MSC Cruises has become the first cruise line to implement a man overboard detection system in regular operation on one of their ships.

Other lines have tested systems but have found them too unreliable (too many false alarms) to put into regular use.

MSC has developed the system in conjunction with Bosch and Hewlett Packard Enterprise aboard MSC Meraviglia, and they have brought it to the point of 97% accuracy.

Details appeared in the October 10 edition of Cruise News Daily.
