Jotron AS was founded in 1967 and has grown into one of the most respected names in the maritime sector, primarily for Safety at Sea products.

Jotron was the first company to develop and bring to market an Emergency Position-Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB).

The Jotron Group has since then expanded with several more product groups and has now a broad portfolio of products and systems for maritime communication applications as well as software for maritime applications.

Jotron provides reliable and professional communication products for commercial vessels, fishing vessels and large pleasure crafts as well as high intensity marker and emergency lights for various marine and other applications ranging from mountaineering, hiking and diving to fish farm and lifeboat applications.

The Global Maritime Distress & Safety System (GMDSS) was established in 1992 by the IMO requiring all ships covered by the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) to install one 406 MHz float-free EPIRB, two radar transponders and portable VHF’s. Since the establishment of GMDSS, Jotron has become a major supplier of the specified emergency radio equipment necessary to fulfill these mandatory requirements.

Phontech Communication Systems supplies reliable voice communication systems linking the bridge to the engine room, accommodation cabins and various internal and external locations, which is vital for safe operations onboard ships and offshore installations.

Consultas Maritime Software has a team of naval architects, marine engineers and IT engineers, who with their experience and expertise supply Loading Computer and Fleet Management Software. The Loading software surpasses the current industry standards for load calculations onboard most type of ships and rigs, and provides users with safe and efficient tool for calculations and production of reports.

SatCom (new member and 5th product group) enables modern vessels to access affordable round-the-clock broadband data. In the future this will apply for all types of ships as affordable equipment and services become increasingly available on the market. Affordable broadband access at sea will become the norm, expected by and required for professional users and crews at sea.
