Innovation. Migrant Offshore Aid Station (MOAS) is leading humanitarian efforts globally with their no nonsense approach to search and rescue of the thousands of people either fleeing war, conflicts or economic hardships across the Mediterranean Sea.
Now, MOAS, in conjunction with Grey for Good, are launching the I SEA app for the iPhone to crowdsource searching the sea through satellite imagery technology with people around the world. Each person is allocated one plot of the sea to “watch” and then alert MOAS if a migrant vessel is spotted.
MOAS is an internationally recognized search and rescue organization founded by two entrepreneurs and humanitarians, Christopher and Regina Catrambone. They have achieved another milestone in successfully transforming humanitarian emergency operationss through technology, first with drones and now with a crowdsourcing app, I SEA.
