|Sci-Tech (POB) Ltd. is an SME (Small to Medium Enterprise) based in the Space Cluster at Harwell.
The company was formed in 2008 after the owners became the first triple winners of the European Satellite Navigation Competition, winning the UK Prize, the GSA (GNSS Supervisory Authority) prize for the best use of EGNOS, and the overall Galileo Masters prize.
The prize winning concept was for a 'Man Overboard' product for the leisure boating market.
|We have expanded the original idea to create a ruggedised marine tracker. You can follow the story under 'POB History'.
