SafeTrx gives rescue services access to data the skippers provide themselves as long as they are in range of a mobile network. In case of an emergency, the MRCC can use the stored data to support search missions. Sometimes the information we get on missing leisure boats is very poor. We are sure that SafeTrx can help to close this gap and will be of great support to locate people who need assistance, and it will minimise false alerts from family members that we often get if crews are overdue.
Executive Director, German Maritime Search & Rescue Service
“We’re delighted to join sea rescue organisations worldwide in bringing SafeTrx to Finland. Offering SafeTrx to our volunteers, members and boating community enhances Finnish Lifeboat Institute’s marine search and rescue services, ultimately improving safety along Finland’s coastline and inland lakes. As a proven maritime safety platform, we are confident SafeTrx can help reduce the risk of maritime accidents and the loss of human lives at sea in Finland.”
Vice Chairman of the Board, Finnish Lifeboat Institute
The Norwegian Sea Rescue Society has decided to enter into a cooperation with several other sea rescue organisations around the world in implementing the SafeTrx safety app for boaters. The excellent technology and the tight cooperation with other sea rescue organisations is key for us moving forwards with SafeTrx.

Offering SafeTrx to our boating community enhances MRQ’s marine search and rescue services, ultimately improving safety along Queenslands 2,700km coastline. With tens of thousands of Sail Plans filed in Australia and other countries, the system is a proven solution in mobile vessel tracking.

Safetrx is an international product with a solid reputation. It has been successfully used in other countries around the globe and we are excited to announce the launch of RSA SafeTrx. It is another tool that paddlers and small craft users can add to their safety equipment, which will help to take the search out of Search and Rescue.

This new SafeTrx App has the potential to get our resources on-scene as quickly as possible which will in turn save lives.

When did they set off? Where were they going? When were they due back? What was their last known location? These are all vital pieces of the puzzle and the Coastguard welcomes any system that can contribute to the information gathering effort. RYA SafeTrx will help provide this information, meaning that valuable time is not lost.

Around 50% of the incidents managed by the Spanish Maritime Safety Agency are related to leisure activities. Salvamento MarÃtimo SafeTrx can locate, track and monitor vessels in distress which are not required to have neither GMDSS equipment nor VTS systems, providing a new approach to deal with these kind of incidents. We are sure this application can play a significant role in improving safety in coastal waters!

We think we can make an important contribution to the safety of Netherlands watersport end users by offering them the KNRM-SafeTrx application.
