Anne Kalosh: Patented man overboard alert system Tadeo uses RFID bracelet

Inventor Rafael Alicea is touting a patented system he hopes will save lives and the high costs of search and rescue operations by immediately detecting people going overboard and pinpointing their exact location.

Alicea was motivated to find a solution to the challenges of detecting people going overboard after a 21-year-old man was lost from a cruise ship off Belize in 2011. Incidents of passengers going overboard from cruise ships are rare but concerning, a matter the industry has been working to address for years.
