DESCRIPTION OF THE BUSINESS
The SRT Marine Systems plc (‘SRT’) group of companies develop and provide technologies, products and services which enhance maritime domain awareness. Globally there are 26 million vessels, 1.6 million km of coastline and thousands of major ports. Today, 90% of global trade by value relies on this vital infrastructure to be transported from one place to the next by sea. SRT develops sophisticated wireless communication technologies, products and services that significantly enhance the safety and security of the global maritime domain. In recent years, a new technology called Automatic Identification System (AIS) has been introduced by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) and adopted globally as the standard maritime domain information technology system. This sophisticated and complex mesh network technology enables the precise identification and monitoring of all marine traffic as well as a platform to communicate other information and services applicable to the marine environment. SRT has deployed its internal wireless communication development abilities to create a range of AIS technology and product solutions which marine electronics companies can use to create their own unique AIS products. Over the last decade, SRT has invested heavily in the creation of a wide range of best in class AIS products and a global network of customers each with their own established brands and sales channels. SRT develops and sells a range of core technology modules and standard OEM products to existing marine electronics companies who wish to have their own AIS product range. Market applications for the products range from leisure through to commercial and homeland security.
