What is BigOceanData?

BigOceanData – a company with a proven pedigree

The company that today is Big Ocean Data began in the mid-1990s as one of the first organisations to explore the potential of vessel tracking technology.

Back then we pioneered the integration of Inmarsat-C and GPS to create one of the earliest deep ocean vessel tracking systems.

That proved the springboard into providing asset tracking and management systems to a range of other industries as new technologies including AIS became widely available.

As a leader in telemetry, tracking and positioning solutions, the company has formed strategic relationships with diverse clients in the maritime sector. These include DEFRA, the UK government department whose responsibilities include monitoring the country’s 6,000-strong fishing fleet, and the organisers of the world’s leading round-the-world yacht race.
