Sci-Tech (POB) Marine Tracker and Alert System
Diver Safety Aid


POB Header


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'.

The company is now based in the Space Cluster at Harwell, Oxford, where it is nearing completion of the development of its Diver Tracking and Alert system, and supplying consultancy in GNSS enabled tracking, especially in harsh / maritime environments.
