Pontus New Technology Expected to Disrupt and Expand the Wet-Mate Connector Marketplace

With modern intervention systems able to operate throughout the oceans, ‘normal’ sorts of work are now possible on much of our planet’s heretofore inaccessible surface. Existing underwater mateable connectors fundamentally unchanged since the 1990’s, are not suited for the wide variety of new applications. The manufacturer who enables these applications with smaller, lighter-weight, economical fluid-filled connectors should have a commanding industry position for decades. Pontus Subsea owns the new patented technology. It could be yours.

Typical Pontus Oil-Filled Products
Subsea Connectors
Underwater-mateable connectors are specialized electrical, optical or hybrid electro-optical devices that allow circuits to be connected and/or disconnected in extremely harsh environments (deep sea, littoral zone, battlefield, etc.). They are used in a multitude of applications including those listed below, and their future uses will continue to expand, in both subsea and terrestrial harsh environment networks. Existing high reliability fluid-filled products for heavy-duty use are not suitable for many of the new applications. Pontus new compact, light-weight technology is aimed at satisfying the new challenges.

Pontus Connector Technology

Subsea wet-mate connectors now represent an annual market of over $500M and growing. This strong stable industry lacks affordable products suitable for today’s new applications. The products now commercially available have remained substantially unchanged since the 1990’s… until now.

Pontus’ revolutionary wet-mate connectors address the problem with a simple end-seal construction that greatly reduces part count, materials, and assembly time. The result is smaller, less expensive, lighter weight wet-mates for a wide variety of modern uses.

Your chance to acquire this breakthrough technology is here.
