As part of Oversee’s continual development programme, CRITICAL Software has signed a cooperation agreement with the Portuguese Navy, taking advantage of its extensive operational expertise and experience, with the goal of researching and developing new technologies to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of maritime operations.

Oversee is a multiple award-winning product, known for its technological innovation amongst maritime professionals. CRITICAL Software was nominated for recognition at the SmartOcean 2012 event, held in Galway, Ireland, in the innovative company category, for its development of Oversee. The award distinguishes companies for their technological innovations that provide global economic advantages to the maritime industry.

Oversee was also the recipient of the ‘Best Technical Innovation’ award at SAR Europe 2014, in Copenhagen, Denmark, and again at SAR Europe 2015, in Portsmouth, UK. In granting the award to CRITICAL Software, the 2015 jury stated that: “Oversee improves rescue co-ordination staff’s efficiency in responding to SAR incidents, providing a very intuitive system that builds and merges the systems already available to Rescue Co-ordination Centres, enabling them to be more efficient and effective in responding to SAR alerts. The system is a huge leap forward in the management of SAR incidents.”
