About Hov Pod – We Are about Innovation
From the moment we build our first Hov Pod 16 years ago we have not stopped looking for ways to innovate. As most of our competitors continued to build their hovercraft out of fiberglass, seven years ago we spent over a million dollars in research and development and created the first high density polyethylene (HDPE) hull. In 2015 we spent another million dollars and built the first ever truck size medium duty hovercraft out of Carbon Fiber and Kevlar. Both hulls carry a 5 year warranty.
Over the years our clients have place different kinds of instruments (Payloads) on our hovercraft, including sensors, cameras, sonar and echo sounders. Hov Pod have been used for UXO, marine, pipeline surveys as well as law enforcement and rescue operations. Together we have pushed the limits of our capabilities and launched operations in some of the most remote areas of the world, but that was not enough for us.
About Hov Pod – The Future
In 2016 Hov Pod added to its core of mechanical and marine engineers, a group of practical science, IT and product solutions specialists. We then added experts in rescue planning, military, law enforcement and patrol operations.
We also began to experiment with integrated drone operations, as there are many synergies between UAV and Hovercraft applications. We researched the many ways our products overlap and the ways hovercraft and drones can enhance each other’s operations.
Now we have our own integrated drone platform, a robotic drone battery recharge and swap, tethered drone applications, remote area communications systems, bystander medical rescue products and disaster relief solutions such as water filtration.
In 2017 we’ve integrated Hov Pod with new technologies, such as IR Radar, Long Range VTOL Fixed Wing UAV, Maritime, Remote Area, 3D Mapping/Monitoring Software, added a multitude of payload or sensor options and developed autonomous hovercraft, Hov Pod (USV). All of this leading to the launch of POD Ops (Perimeter Observation and Disaster Operations), our unique amphibious and all terrain security solutions.
In 2018 our POD Ops solutions will integrated with, planned, produced, implemented, controlled and managed by artificial intelligence, powered by IBM Watson.
