The innovative rescueME MOB1 by British company, Ocean Signal, has been nominated for a prestigious DAME Design Award.
Developed by UK communication and safety at sea specialist Ocean Signal as the world’s most advanced Man Overboard locating device, the rescueME MOB1 has been selected by the DAME Awards Jury in the ‘lifesaving and safety equipment’ category.
The MOB1 incorporates both AIS and DSC technologies within the most compact product on the market at 30% smaller than similar products. The easy-to-use device has been designed to integrate into a life jacket, ensuring the best chance of rapid rescue for an MOB in extreme conditions.
Celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, the DAME Design Award was initiated to recognise the best-designed products at the METSTRADE exhibition and successfully highlights the importance of design for all marine products every year. The DAME Jury considers the expected impact on the marine industry of entries, their suitability for intended purpose, the level of innovation, the cost effectiveness and environmental impact.
The rescueME MOB1 is among the short-listed products that have been nominated to go forward for final judging by the Jury of the silver jubilee edition of the DAME Awards. The jury will eventually choose up to seven Category Winners and one Overall Winner which will be announced during the Breakfast Briefing on the opening day of the METSTRADE show 2015, which takes place from 17 to 19 November in the RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre. Nominated and winning products will be on display during the METSTRADE show as part of a special presentation near to Entrance C.
