We combine first-hand experience at sea with cutting-edge technology

Data transfer system designated to prioritize safety and security

Our product advances the standards of maritime safety and security. Any company that is seriously committed to QHSSE (Quality, Health, Safety, Security & Environment) regulations will realize the benefits.

Our products exceed by far the effectiveness of existing QHSSE tools and equipment being used on board vessels and offshore installations, by improving the supervision and monitoring of all on board personnel.

Reliable QHSSE solution for the challenging maritime environment

The maritime industry presents specific challenges to the protection of human safety and security. The remote location of vessels and offshore installations requires the crew to be self-reliant and efficient, especially during emergency situations. The steel structure of a vessel or offshore installation creates interference, which compromises traditional safety monitoring systems.

We are committed to our innovative solution, which overcomes the challenges in steel environments. The system enables complete coverage of a vessel or offshore installation, achieving maximum safety and security to all personnel on board.

Meet our founders

Raised in maritime tradition, we turn our passion for technology into solutions designed for the steel environment on board vessels and offshore installations.
