Our history in brief

2019 - Company Start

Participating in several ocean research projects Jann Wendt formed the idea of cloud-based sensor data processing over time. Together with Frithjof Hennemann they started planning and forming a team entering into the funding of the company in November 2019.

2020 - First Milestone

The storming phase when we started to gather the brightest heads in web development and cloud computing sketching their architecture how to sufficiently handle and process big maritime data by making use of scalable cloud resources. Corona did not stop us, but made the necessity for platform collaboration even more vivid!

2021 - Second Milestone

The norming phase when the sketches were transferred into a solid code base and tested on cloud infrastructure. We also entered into first research projects to developing on particular use cases and data challenges with maritime sensor data. Our work was recognized and rewarded with the VisionAward in October 2021.


The platform is ready in test version. Demo sessions with data users are conducted. Platform release to the market is envisaged for summer! Meanwhile we contribute in the project Marispace-X aiming to incorporate European Gaia-X standards to maritime data processing and sharing.

Our network

We love the collaboration with our business partners and therefore proudly present them here.
