Actisense aim to be the installer’s product of choice by making navigation safer with the most reliable boat electronic systems.
Based in Poole, Dorset on the south coast of England, Active Research Limited has established an enviable world-wide reputation within the specialist field of marine electronics. This has been achieved by providing an excellent level of service to our extensive client base and through the design and manufacture of prestigious marine electronic equipment.
The company was formed in January 1997 by Phil Whitehurst, who as a Chartered Electronics Engineer recognised there was a need for innovative and reliable marine electronic equipment. As a keen sailor himself, Phil realised the potential within the leisure marine market was not being met by the existing marine companies, and so set about designing and manufacturing an entire range of products, which are unique in their quality and sophistication in the marine marketplace.
Utilising over 20 years of specialist experience in the design of DSP software and hardware, in the field of smart sensors and underwater acoustics, Actisense is now a market leader in manufacturing intelligent marine electronic products.
Our advanced working knowledge and understanding of the NMEA standards has enabled us to hone and perfect our NMEA 0183 and NMEA 2000 product designs and we also act in an advisory capacity for other manufacturers and developers in the industry.
To promote the groundbreaking designs of Active Research Limited, the “Actisense” brand name was registered, and has now become synonymous with excellence in the smart sensor and NMEA interconnection product areas.
