“We engaged with KBG IT to carry out all of the IT related work in helping us become an independent organisation, and they also became the first point of contact for all IT related issues our internal staff faced.
UK firm develops satellite-linked monitoring technology offering huge benefits for operators of vessels of all sizes on the world's oceans. A Gosport company is pioneering technology which can monitor the biggest marine diesel engines on the high seas and transmit a simple ‘health score’ to a vessel’s operator thousands of miles away. Being able to predict when a supertanker, container vessel or cruise ship needs to be brought into port for engine maintenance can avoid breakdowns at sea, saving six-figure sums for shipping owners and management companies. IntelliMon, part of STS Defence Ltd, led a consortium which received £1 million of Innovate UK funding to develop the ground breaking diagnostic technology through a two-year collaborative R&D project called IConIC (Intelligent Condition monitoring with Integrated Communications). It involved two other south coast businesses, NGnuity Ltd and LW Partners Ltd, along with the Universities of Portsmouth and Southampton and the Satellite Applications Catapult.
