Oceanbotics™ is the newest division of RJE International, Inc. and features an interesting history – one could even say that innovation is written into the team’s collective DNA.
The history behind RJE International products and it’s reputation for developing advanced tech in the marine industry all started from one German-Austrian family. In 1972 the famed inventor Ernst Jechart was responsible for creating the modern-day portable atomic clock.
His invention would later pave the way for some groundbreaking technologies, including the Global Positioning System (GPS) that we all defer to today when using our phones for navigation.
This curiosity for technical innovation and entrepreneurial ambition was then seemingly passed to his son, Robert Jechart (pictured right), who chose to continue this legacy as Founder and CEO of RJE International and Oceanbotics™.
RJE International was started in 1990 by Robert Jechart in the spare bedroom of his home and has now become a world leader in underwater navigation systems, including beacons for black boxes on aircraft, and underwater mission critical products. Our customers include the U.S. Navy and many other government and commercial diving ops in over 40 countries around the world.
