Automated Morse code, a fusion of tradition and technology, streamlines communication using the iconic dots and dashes. In this modern era, where efficiency is paramount, automated Morse code systems leverage electronic devices to transmit messages with precision.

We have a prototype ready and are researching to apply encryption for military users. If you are interested please let us know. We are looking for partners to take this development further.

Introducing our cutting-edge SATNAV antenna in development, a technological marvel designed to revolutionise navigation. With an unwavering commitment to precision and reliability, our antenna boasts resistance to jamming, ensuring uninterrupted navigation in most challenging environments.

Prototype production is underway, after which we will start testing in a real life environment. We are looking for partners to help testing and to take this development further.

This jamming resistant satellite navigation antenna is currently under development bij MNTR.

Some of our finished projects and prototypes

Search and rescue remotely operated vehicle equipped with SATNAV, sonar, navigation lights and markers which can be dropped.


This remote operated vehicle is specifically designed for first responder use. Equipped with sonar, SATNAV and a mechanism to drop markers making it ideal for search and rescue missing aiming to find objects or missing persons under water.

Miniature towed side scan sonar (SSS) to map the seabed from any kind of small vessel including ROVs.


This lightweight sonar fish allows you to easily deploy this sonar by yourself and tow it behind any vessel, including ROVs and even sailing boats, without the need for large constructions onboard. The sonar also has an integrated echo sounder to record depth soundings. 

Rugged and solid state satellite navigation antenna for use in demanding environments.


One of our customers needed a versatile and physically strong satellite navigation antenna for use in hostile environments. This is it. It is a multi constellation receiver, capable of receiving GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou and Galileo, constructed to withstand harsh environments.
