Sonistics: supporting global Submarine Escape, Rescue, Abandonment and Survival (SMERAS)

Established in March 2005 to bridge the gap between Industry and global Defence Ministries, Sonistics
has a strong network of Subject Matter Experts to fulfill major projects with the SMERAS community.

 

KEY AREAS OF OPERATION

Our passion is all things submarines and survival if the unthinkable happens. We work tirelessly to find solutions to age-old problems.

Sonistics has a database of key contractors who supply sub-sea developments. Access to this database is via the SMERAS on-line Directory.  This database is placed in front of procurement officers and other end-users as part of the sonistics.com website.

Safety and Survival at sea are at the core of Sonistics and we strive to find and introduce new services and products to improve the lot
of anyone who goes to sea.

Since the conception of Sonistics as a bridge between Navies and Contractors, we have developed further our role within the community to include:-

  • Development and supply of the Submarine Escape and Abandonment Pack - SEApac™ INCREASES SURVIVABILITY ON THE SURFACE

  • Production of the Astute Class Submarine Guardbook for BAE Marine Ltd

  • Co-ordination of in-country Submarine Escape Training using SETT trainers and expertise

  • Introduction of contractors to key global contracts

  • Submarine Escape Training Towers

  • Introduction of Contractors to the Submarine Air Monitoring and Purification (SAMAP) Conference

  • Contracted by the UK MoD to assist with the tender assessment for the supply of Submarine Escape and Immersion Suits
    for the RN

  • Development of the SMERAS on-line Directory extending into new, investigated markets

  • Brought to market TELSON portable underwater telephone

  • Partnerships with companies supplying innovative products

 

Sonistics continues to introduce new contractors and their services/products into the market place and always strives to provide
the best information/introductions to our subscriber.
