Shark Mitigation Systems is a company that was incorporated in Western Australia to research and commercialise technologies that mitigate the increasing occurrence of shark attacks globally.
SMS, in collaboration with the University of Western Australia’s Oceans Institute and School of Animal Biology, developed new technology enabling the manufacture of marine apparel which aims to reduce the risk of shark attack. The technology is based on recently developed science of shark vision, neurobiology and behavioural effects.
Breakthrough science in determining what predatory sharks can see, at certain depths and distances and under certain light and water conditions has been incorporated into neoprene materials and commercial prototype wetsuit designs. This technology has been labelled: Shark Attack Mitigation Systems technology, or SAMS.
It is anticipated that SM8 will list on the ASX during March 2016.
