A new service is soon to be launched by the Police General HQ, titled “Sail Safely”, that is dedicated to communicating with those who are lost in the sea, using the latest technologies and AI systems.

Brigadier General Khalid Nasser Al Razouki, Director of the General Directorate of Artificial Intelligence, explained that the developed application operates by finding and describing the accurate location of missing sailors, which helps rescuers respond faster to emergencies.

“The application operates by automatically sending fours distress signals (messages) that ranges up to 7 nautical miles in depth, and 70 nautical miles along coasts of Dubai Emirate. Such service enables finding quick and efficient solutions,” Brig. Gen. Al Razouki added.

Furthermore, Brig. Gen. Al Razouki stressed on the keenness of the Dubai Police to maintain safety of all fishermen and sea-goers, and provide the necessary communication channels to be used during emergencies. He pointed out that the “Sail Safely” application enables police officials to locate its user and learn about details of his sail trip, through a smart platform with a special control screen that is connected to operations.

The application includes several features besides the distress signal, such as tracking trips,  sending alerts on late trips, locating diving spots, quick response and accurate locating the distressed, identifying the type and severity of distress, and providing free and easy-to-read nautical charts.

Last but not least, Brig. Gen. Al Razouki, pointed out his keenness to achieve ultimate customer happiness by working side to side with the Dubai Police, following organised and accurate systematic plans and using modern monitoring devices.
