The solution is the first of its kind, providing a means for boaters to file a Sail Plan (SP) with the Coast Guard from a Smartphone. With a set of server side processes, the solution monitors the journey, alerts designated contacts should a journey exceed an ETA and provides a web-based user interface for the Coast Guard to rapidly assist in locating an overdue vessel. SafeTrx is an innovative tool aimed to complement the existing technology that assists in saving lives at sea.
