ISea app by MOAS to rescue migrants from seas

Migration at the seas is one of the worst human crises of current time. Search and rescue operations are being carried out to reduce the loss of life, but that’s not enough when compared to the vastness of the sea.

In an aim to reduce loss of life, Migrant Offshore Aid Station (MOAS) have introduced an app 'ISea' to search of seas for migrants for IOS platform.

'ISea' uses satellite images, it divides the satellite images into millions of small plots and every user is assigned a unique plot of the sea to monitor.

On spotting a migrant ship, the user can tag and report it and the information, along with the coordinates. The information will be processed by the relevant authorities and passed to MOAS ships to carry out search and rescue operations.
