The Next Generation Communications and MAN-IN-WATER-ALARM detection system

The MAN IN WATER ALARM system is developed for easy to use, with clear audio radiocommunication and for quick detection if a person falls into the water.

The system is built around Motorola Evolve radio terminal equipped with a Bluetooth water sensor.

The Evolve handheld LTE device combines intuitive user experience and open platform architecture with the ruggedness and reliability expected of a critical communications device.

Evolve enables seamless communications across different locations and networks, and does not depend on you building out a separate radio network infrastructure.

For those needing a mission and business critical voice, distress and data device that is truly adaptable for your needs today and tomorrow, the system give you  the capabilities of an Android device with the ruggedness and reliability you need across 3G, 4G and Wi-Fi with dual SIM capacity.


The Man In Water Alarm system combined with WAVE PTX does not need its own infrastructure and connects your team across different devices, networks, and locations.

Man-in-water sensor

The man-in-water sensor is using your Motorola professional radio equipment to broadcast an emergency alarm to the control centre. The sensor is attached to your lifejacket and will trigger a search & rescue operation within seconds. Your colleagues will be your first line of support receiving an alarm message with your GPS position. The control centre will be simultaneously informed and coordinate the rescue operation to bring you back to safety.

The man-in-water solution is offers a search & rescue feature to track the live position of the man-in-water.

The system offers a large selection of accessories



Rescue control center integration

Man-in-water alarms can be transferred to the rescue center via three different channels (SMS, UDP broadcast, and Wave PTX). The alarm is displayed inside an alarm-list (below) and the operator is able to publish an estimated time-to-rescue


System description

MAN-IN-WATER  application

Ready Mode

Once the Sensor is Turned-ON, it moves to Discovery State trying to pair with a radio via bluetooth. The pairing needs to be confirmed from the radio Bluetooth/Devices/Find Devices.

Alarm Mode

When the sensor is contact with water, a pre-alarm is triggered on the radio. Five seconds later, the alarm escalades to the level of an emergency alarm and is broadcasted accross all active radios of the same call group.

Distress Mode

When a radio user triggers an alarm, all radios on the same network will receive the alarm. These radios will then automatically change function and go into Search and rescue (SAR) mode, where they can get an overview of where the person in distress is located.

The Man-In-Water radio when switching to emergency mode, automatically enters into a PTT voice loop to enable voice communications without having to press the PTT button.



The radio-sensor connectivity is done via Bluetooth leaving the PTT/headset port port available.

This solution is appreciated by operators who are now able to combine the safety requirement of a man-water-detector with the use of hardwired audio-microphone headsets.

The bluetooth sensor is completely water-proof. The wireless connection is free of all corrosion issues that could have altered the propagation of the man-in-water alarm.

The sensor is running on its own battery which needs to be recharged.

Sensors use an induction charger for charging

Expected battery life is 250 hours.
