logo-elman-2Established in 1975, ELMAN operates in the design, manufacture, maintenance, and installation of telecommunications systems, taking care of the maintenance required to ensure the best possible operation in the long term.

The Company, along with Italian Authorities and following the evolution of international regulations, has defined a strategy which enabled the development of an innovative program, leading to maximum satisfaction of both national and international customers. This has been made possible by the high degree of flexibility that characterizes ELMAN, in addition to the constant adoption of the most advanced technologies available.

In this context, the capabilities of radio equipments have followed the advancements of technology, evolving from analog audio to digital communications for both audio and data with enhanced performance both in terms of service quality and reliability.

One of ELMAN’s main accomplishments is the development of the AIS (Automatic Identification System), which allows monitoring and identification of maritime traffic. ELMAN has developed both the marine and the ground-based components of the AIS and, for the latter, the integration of data collected by all the national AIS base stations and their visualization on electronic cartography in a central location, enabling display of all the AIS-compliant vessels in the national area.

Among the most innovative products developed by ELMAN, one of the latest is the implementation of VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) technology to enable integration of all the national ground-based radio stations of the Italian Coast Guard.

In the last years Elman has developed and realized VTMIS systems for vessel traffic monitoring and information management.

All ELMAN products are designed to comply to military requirements and are therefore suitable for those customers who particularly care for flexibility, reliability and quality. ELMAN is skilled in the design of solutions specially tailored to the customers' needs.

The internal activity management system of ELMAN complies with the UNI EN ISO9001:2008 regulation. This system has been certified by DNV.
