At Pole Star, we develop pioneering maritime intelligence technologies to protect our customers’ vessels, people, reputation, and financial investments.

Since 1998, we have pushed the limits of innovation, working with governments and businesses across the supply chain to mitigate the growing threats to ships, supply chains, cargo, territorial waters and, most importantly, lives within the maritime infrastructure and beyond.

Our wide range of solutions are designed specifically to enable time-critical decisions and mitigate risk across all facets of maritime activity – from cross-border trade to sustainability risk to the monitoring of territorial waters and everything in between.
